Representatives of the Cyprus Turkish Bar Association travelled to Ankara on Thursday to receive updates on the case against the operators of the Isias Hotel.

The lawyers will meet with Turkish counterparts to learn about the case’s current situation, with high-profile Turkish lawyers Hasan Esendagli and Erinc Sagkan expected to attend.

The Isias Hotel was located in Adiyaman, in southeastern Turkey, and collapsed during the devastating earthquakes which hit the region in February. A total of 35 Turkish Cypriots died as a result of the collapse, most of whom were children.

Five people connected with the hotel were arrested following the earthquake and are now standing trial.
