Journalist Nebiye Arı was detained while following the university students’ protest (We Cannot Find Housing / Shelter Movement) on rising housing prices, amid other necessities fast becoming unaffordable for them. A lawsuit was filed against Arı for “violating Law No. 2911 on Meetings and Demonstrations”.

The protest of university students in Ankara on December 12, 2021 had been banned by the governor’s office. Arı, who was detained while following the protest, was released on December 13. The first hearing of the case will be held on November 25 (June 14).
