Closed Case
25 July 2019

Zübeyde Füsun Üstel, the only academic in the Academics for Peace trials who had been imprisoned, was released on 22 July 2019. She was in detention in Eskişehir Women's Closed Prison since she turned herself in on 8 May 2019 to serve her jail term which was upheld by the İstanbul Regional Court of Justice’s 3rd Penal Chamber.

The Eskişehir 1st Judgeship of Execution accepted the request of Academic for Peace Zübeyde Füsun Üstel to be transferred to an open prison. However, upon the objection of the Prosecutor, the Eskişehir 1st Heavy Penal Court overturned this decision.
