A French student who was deported from Turkey during the Gezi Park protests has appealed to the authorities to allow her to return to the country after charges against her were dropped. Elisa Couvert was studying Kurdish on her Erasmus programme.

A 24-year-old French student, who was deported after being detained by police during the Gezi Park protests in Istanbul on June 11, said she appealed for the cancellation of the deportation decision following her acquittal of charges.

The deportation was not based on any written justification, Elisa Couvert told daily Hürriyet, and is now void, since the prosecutor acquitted her of the charges before releasing her.

Couvert was detained June 11 while she took refuge in a nearby Socialist Democracy Party (SDP) branch during police intervention in Taksim, claiming she knew nothing of the party, or of the building, before she took shelter there. There were about thirty people inside the SDP building who had escaped from tear gas.
