Dismissed woman judge Sevda Guven and her husband, dismissed police chief Zeki Guven were rounded up by the police on 22 May 2018. They were arrested over the pretext of terrorism charges on 28 May 2018.

It is reported that, Zeki Güven died because of a heart attack on 1st July 2018; however, because of lack of effective investigation about post coup deaths in custodies, his death remains suspicious.

Nevertheless, on 21. June 2021, Turkey’s Constitutional Court has ruled there was no rights violation concerning the imprisonment of Zeki Güven.
