MP Gergerlioğlu had claimed that one prisoner in Ankara tested positive for coronavirus.
Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office has opened an investigation against Peoples’ Democratic PArty (HDP) MP Ömer Faruk Gergerlioğlu over his claims that a prisoner tested positive for coronavirus in Ankara, the capital.
He said in a tweet that a 70-year-old inmate at Sincan No. 2 Type L Prison was diagnosed with Covid-19.
The prosecutor’s office refuted the claims and opened an investigation for “creating fear and panic among people.”
It said that a prisoner who had a chronic disease was sent to Ankara City Hospital on March 22 and that the person was not a Covid-19 patient. (TP/VK)
