6-Year-Old son Left Without Parents
 
HOPA, Turkey – A Hamshen Armenian husband and wife have been arrested by Turkish authorities within two days of each other for being Armenian. As a result of the arrest, their six-year-old son Arev, who witnessed his parents being hauled away, is now alone.
 
According to Turkish media, Cemil Aksu was arrested Wednesday while Nurcan Vayic was arrested two days prior during when Turkish police raided their house in the middle of the night.
 
Vayic has already been convicted and sentenced to three months imprisonment for her anti-government writings online while the husband has not been charged yet.  Aksu and Vayic were both bloggers who actively criticize the Turkish government.
 
Vayic has extensively written about the growing fascism in Turkish government, which has recently called for persecution of the people of Hamshen. Her friends are convinced that her arrest was a direct result of an organized plot against her.
 
Aksu was the Hopa District Chair of the Peoples’ Democratic Party and was one of the editors of “Gor” magazine. His wife was the former chair of the Hopa Socialist Party of the Oppressed (ESP).
 
The couple also owned a cafe in Hopa named Babil, where they displayed and sold leftist literature.
 
Aksu was released following his deposition.
 
The town of Hopa, in the Hamshen region of Turkey is 11 miles from the Georgian border near Javakhk.

 Nurcan's Armenian friends are spoken of in the article~ I'm sure they helped the boy in the first few hours~ Cemil has now been released so thing should be good for a while~ but now that the Hamshentsi are openly saying they are Armenian~ Turks and the Turkish government are going to go after them``` Turks```
 
 
She look very Armenian```

HOPA, Turkey—Political activists Nurcan Vayiç Aksu and Cemil Aksu —both of Armenian origin—were released from a Turkish prison on Friday, after being incarcerated for several weeks.

Political activist Nurcan Vayiç Aksu was taken into police custody on Oct. 19 after a house raid. Her husband, journalist and environmental activist Cemil Aksu, was arrested a few days later in the city of Artvin, for supposedly “praising crime and criminals” in his social media posts.

According to reports, Vayiç is a human rights activist and a member of the Socialist Party of the Oppressed (ESP). Aksu is the local co-chair of the opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) and one of the editors of the Gor-Hemshin cultural magazine.

The couple is from the town of Hopa in Artvin, commonly known as the Hemshin (Hamshen) region, about 12 miles from the Georgian border. As long-time political activists, the two have spoken out about the local history and Armenian identity of the Hemshin region, as well as on environmental matters and  women’s rights issues. Both have been critical of the Turkish government, led by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Upon being released, the couple posted photos on social media with their eight-year-old child Arev, who was being taken care of by his aunt while the two were imprisoned.
