Citizens living in Sapanca Kırkpınar stated that they applied to the court to stop the execution “The court has not yet decided to stop the execution. Works should not be started when there are lawsuits filed and ongoing. ”

MMO Sakarya Province Representative Salim Aydın, who made a statement on behalf of TMMOB components, said: alan The selected area in Kırkpınar is an Emergency Disaster Gathering area and a children's park and recreation area used by the local people. It is also a land that has been donated to the state in the past, provided that it is not used by the people of the region for any other purpose. ”
