An article from IPA News about Mahir Mete Kul:

"Mahir Mete Kul has been missing since Sunday (24 March) when the boat in which he and his friend were traveling capsized on Evros, a river that marks the Turkish-Greek border.

Kul, a computer engineering student at Istanbul’s Beykent University, was trying to flee persecution in Turkey after he spent 10 months in jail on terrorism charges for attending protests held by a high-school branch of Revolutionary Youth (Dev-Genç).

The student was released from prison, pending trial, five months ago, and a travel ban was imposed on him. He and a friend, Sadik Senbaba, decided to leave the country illegally and head for Europe. They paid a smuggler to take them in a boat on Evros river, Araz said.

On Sunday, the boat capsized and Kul went missing. His friend informed the Greek police and the family of the incident. However, there has been no information on the whereabouts of Kul for three days."

The Greek government has stated that the search and rescue operations will end on Friday. We demand that the Greek services continue their search operations for Mahir Mete Kul until he is found. Hundreds of people have drowned in the Evros river between Greece and Turkey, it's time for something to be done about this humanitarian crisis.
