Mr. Ilhan Karabag has been in detention for two months now at The National Investigation Service (Sofia 1797, bul. G.M.Dimitrov 42, et. 4, 13) and attended several court sessions so far. In front of the court, a small group of protesters demanded a general stop of deportations to Turkey before the last court session.
On May 29th 2019 the Sofia Administrative Court will decide to accept or reject Mr. Karabag’s appeal for political asylum in Bulgaria. In the previous court session there was at least one presence of a Turkish diplomat. On May 28th 2019 the Sofia Court of Appeal (SAC) will decide on his deportation. His eventual following deportation would result in his immediate incarceration, as Mr. Karabag has been sentenced in Turkey to 6 years and 3 months in jail.
