بنا به اطلاعات دریافتی، دادستان عمومی صبح روز ۲۱ مارچ ۲۰۱۷ پیش از حضور آقای راجی بیلیچی نزد قاضی کشیک دادگاه کیفری صلح در دیار بکر، از او بازجویی کرد. دادگاه تصمیم به آزادی موقت آقای راجی بیلیچی ـ مشروط به کنترل قضایی او ـ گرفت. در نتیجه، از سفر ممنوع شده و باید هفتهای یک بار به ادارهی پلیس در دیار بکر مراجعه کند.
دادستان اعلام کرد که تحقیقات علیه آقای بیلیچی را بر اساس قانون ضدتروریسم به اتهام «رابطه با حزب کارگران کردستان» پیگیری و کیفرخواستی را به دادگاه تقدیم خواهد کرد. دلایل مشخص اتهامها نامعلوم و محتوای پرونده پیرو مادهی ۱۵۳.۲ آئین دادرسی کیفری حتا از وکیل پنهان است.
برنامهی نظارت بر حمایت از مدافعان حقوق بشر یادآوری میکند که دولتمردان بارها از قانون ضدتروریسم برای آزار و زندانی کردن مدافعان حقوق بشر استفاده کردهاند.

Mr. Raci Bilici’s arrest took place against the background of an increased repression against those who have expressed critical views of the current administration, including human rights defenders, following the July 15, 2016, failed coup, and in a particularly tense political climate, ahead of the constitutional referendum set to take place on April 16, 2017.
The Observatory fears that IHD’s monitoring of human rights violations triggered the arrest of Mr. Raci Balici. Indeed, IHD had recently provided information for a report by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) exposing human rights violations in South-East Turkey in relation to security operations conducted by the Turkish authorities between July 2015 and December 2016. IHD’s inputs have been crucial, since the OHCHR had been refused access by the Turkish authorities to the South-East region to investigate into allegations of massive destructions, killings and other serious human rights violations .
The Observatory welcomes the provisional release ofMr. Raci Bilici but condemns the harassment, including at the judicial level, targeting him and which only aims at sanctioning to his peaceful and legitimate human rights activities. Accordingly, the Observatory calls upon the Turkish judicial authorities to end all forms of harassment against Mr. Raci Bilici and to lift the travel ban in force against him.
On March 15, 2017 at 6:00 am, Mr. Raci Bilici was arrested at his house by five police men and brought to the Diyarbakır Provincial Security Directorate Anti-Terror Bureau. No reason was provided regarding his arrest.
Mr. Raci Bilici was amongst the 4,350 teachers who were suspended from duty in Turkey’s South-Eastern Diyarbakır province on September 8, 2016, under Decree Law No. 677. The Ministry of National Education alleged that these teachers “joined activities to prevent domestic operations against terrorist organisations from being successful, failed curfews declared in several districts and cities and violated the right to education”
Please write to the authorities in Turkey, urging them to:
i. Guarantee in all circumstances the physical and psychological integrity of Mr. Raci Bilici as well as of all human rights defenders in Turkey;
ii. Put an end to all forms of harassment, including at judicial level, against Mr. Raci Bilici, as well as all human rights defenders in Turkey;
iii. Lift the travel ban in force against Mr. Raci Bilici;
iv. Comply with all the provisions of the United Nations Declaration on Human Rights Defenders, in particular with its Article 1, 6(a), 9, 11 and 12.2;
v. Ensure in all circumstances respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms in accordance with international human rights standards and international instruments ratified by Turkey.
