İşte Today's Zaman'da yer alan o haber:
"Today's Zaman contributor Rumeysa Kiger, who was among the group to meet with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan last Wednesday, was briefly detained Tuesday morning in Taksim during a protest outside the Atatürk Cultural Center.
Her husband said that she had not gone to Taksim Square to join the protest, but had been passing through on her way to an interview. She was detained while objecting to the police's detention of protesters, he added. He said she is among the group of seven detained as part of the police raid Tuesday morning in Taksim Square.
Kiger said in her Facebook feed that she was at İstiklal Police Station and that a prosecutor would decide whether to release her and others or not. Her husband said she was finally released at 13:30 but it is still unclear if prosecutors will press charges against her.
Police raided multiple addresses in several cities across Turkey on Tuesday, detaining dozens of people following more than two weeks of anti-government protests.
Turkish media reported that at least 25 people had been detained in the capital, Ankara; 13 in Eskişehir to the west; and "many" in Turkey's biggest city, İstanbul. These detentions are not related to the police raid in Taksim.
Ankara's police anti-terror department said it had no information on the reports.
Minutes before her detention, Kiger wrote on her Facebook account that the authorities have started a “large witch-hunt” and that “nobody is safe in this country.”
