Yesterday we, Istanbul Feminist Collective followed Fatma Şen’s case who fell down from the 4th floor because of her husband’s violence. Before this case, Fatma Şen went to the police station many times to ask for protection and even though she has a protection order, Esentepe Police Station did not manage to help her. Thus, she continued to be exposed to domestic violence.
In the end, he even wanted to force her to hang herself but then decided to use a knife instead. Trying to escape him, Fatma fell down from the balcony but luckily she survived.
Now she is still in the hospital to be treated and may be she will not be able to walk again.
Her husband is in the jail waiting for his sentence “not for murder but for forcing her to attempt suicide.”
