İSTANBUL - After Boğaziçi University trustee rector Naci İnci filed a criminal complaint against them, 2 of the 10 students who were taken into custody were remanded in custody.
The appointment of rector Naci İnci as a trustee to Boğaziçi University was protested by students. Four of them were taken into custody on Monday. The arrests followed the declarations of AKP President Tayyip Erdoğan, who targeted the students, labelling them as "terrorists". The students immediately gathered in front of the South Campus of the university to protest the arrests as well as the declarations by the president.
The students held a sit-in at the South Campus and were besieged by the police. At least 6 students were taken into custody and taken to the Istanbul Security Directorate on Vatan Street.
Students Muhammed Çelik, Ismail Gürler and Deniz Çakan were released after their statements. The remaining students Enis Berke Gök, Nazmiye Gizem Sert, Eftelya Koyuncu, Mehmet Velat İnci, Kaan Bozgül, Elif Bayburt and Caner Perit Özen were kept overnight.
It was learned that the trustee rector, Naci Inci, filed a criminal complaint against the detained students on the grounds that they insulted him. The students face charges of "insulting", "damaging public property", "opposing the law on meetings and demonstrations" and "not allowing officers to carry out their duty". The students were brought to the Istanbul Courthouse in Çağlayan for their statements on Tuesday.
Students Koyuncu, Sert, Inci and Bozgül were released on condition of judicial control, while Enis Berke Gök was accused of "damaging public property" and "violating the meetings and demonstrations law", and Elif Bayburt and Caner Perit Özen were accused of "violating the meetings and demonstrations law".
Elif Bayburt was eventually released on condition of judicial control, while Enis Berke Gök and Caner Perit Özen were sent to prison.
