Scuffles took place outside the Istanbul Caglayan Justice Palace on Tuesday, after police forcibly removed a group of picketing lawyers. The security forces used riot shields to push them from the entrance of the building. The protesters were showing solidarity with the Turkish lawyer Ebru Timtik and were demanding an explanation as to why she was arrested in January 2013.
