Rabia Naz Vatan was found dead last April in Eynesil, a small town of 14,000 people in the Black Sea region. The police said the 11-year old committed suicide. Her father, Şaban Naz, did his best to uncover a conspiracy of murder, all the authorities of the small town seem to be part of. Mr. Naz was detained yesterday.
A Twitter user is explaining the whole affair in English here:
Please help efforts to shed light on the suspicious death of on 11-year old in Turkey. The story may seem ordinary, but it exposes how difficult it has become to seek justice in Turkey with a government-controlled media and judiciary. #WhatHappenedToRabiaNaz
