Turkey: Inmates in Kütahya province provided two hours of water

Inmates in a prison in western Turkey’s Kütahya province have limited access to water, the Bold Medya news website reported

The Parmakören T-type prison, a newly built prison complex, provides running water for only two hours a day. Families have expressed outrage, saying inmates are unable to shower, clean their cells, use the toilet or even wash their dishes. “Prison authorities need to find an immediate solution to this problem,” said S.K., a relative of one inmate.

The prison, which holds 1,500 inmates, is not connected to the city water supply, and two wells, which are its only water supply, have nearly dried up. According to prisoners’ families, there are still no attempts to connect the prison to the city water supply.
