The stone building dating back to the reign of Sultan Abdulhamit containing Ward 14A, in which Adnan Oktar was detained.
Images from the Bakirkoy Mental Illnesses Hospital.
Mr. Adnan Oktar was imprisoned for 10 months in such parts of the hospital, among hundreds of mentally ill patients who had committed all sorts of crimes, including even murder. These images show a much better maintained and cared for appearance than when Mr. Oktar was detained there. Adnan Oktar was held here when it was in a far worse and more dilapidated state. Anyone can imagine what it must be like to live among 300 patients devoid of any self-control.
There were 300 such patients in Ward 14A, in which Mr. Oktar was held. He was forbidden to talk to anyone he knew before, and was only allowed to speak to patients such as these.
