Gustáv Husák in Czechoslovakia began to surrender the Kurdish students of South Kurdistan (Iraqi) against Saddam Hussein to Iraq in 1975 by taking advantage of the Swedish Embassy in Prague (Sweden being an impartial country to avoid being accused of anti-regime). Uzunoglu is one of the two Kurdish students who organize the hunger strike made by the embassy.

The cases opened by the "Czech deep state" continue to be cleared in the court on July 31, 2007, because there is no evidence against the accused.

On 13. September 1994, Czech police detained Yekta Uzunoglu (subsequently the officer in charge, Josef Opava, received a fourteen year sentence as a member of the infamous "Berdych's gang"); his unlawful detention (Czech law allowed maximum 24 hours of detention) lasted nearly 72 hours without charges being laid. Afterwards, according to press statement from police officer Jiří Gregor, accusations were made of "illegal arms and drugs trading" and Dr. Uzunoglu was remanded into custody.
One month later, the previous charges were dropped, but more charges were brought of "preparing of murders, unlawful possession of guns, multiple frauds and torture"; these accusations had been laid by "Göksel Otan", supposed Turkish citizen living in the Czech Republic.
The case was litigated until 10. April 1995, when all accusations were proven to be false, except a count of torture. Purportedly Mr. Uzunoglu, with the help of other detainees, had tortured Göksel Otan on 9. September and then two other people (one of them his own cousin), on the date he was detained. At this time, according to court files, one of the accused persons (Uzunoglu's nephew) had been already in custody for several hours. However, even this version of the lawsuit was not accepted by the responsible court.
Meanwhile, Mr. Uzunoglu's remand was prolonged and Mr. Uzunoglu endured unlawful mistreatment, as then minister of justice Jan Ruml later confessed.
Later in 1996, Mr. Uzunoglu received German citizenship, although still in custody. During the ensuing trial, it was shown that "Göksel Otan" was a false identity and that a false passport in that name had been used for at least 25 years. "Göksel" admitted in court that his true name is "Gurkan Gönen". According to Ministry of interior inquiry, Gönen has been a long-term informer of communist STB and after Velvet revolution worked as an informer for cpt. Horák, policeman leading the prosecution of Mr. Uzunoglu. http://ekolist.cz/cz/zpravodajstvi/zpravy/nadace-charty-77-vyhlasuje-cenu-frantiska-kriegla
A final version of the lawsuit, literally same as the one rejected in 1995, was filed on 18. January 2000. In January 2003, the charge moved to Turkey's jurisdiction, which subsequently returned it to the Czech court 9 months later. On 25. September 2003, the Czech court stopped prosecution of Dr. Uzunoglu for humanitarian reasons, but both the prosecutor and Mr. Uzunoglu would not accept this decision; the latter demanded to be cleared of all accusations.
On 3. March 2006, important figures of the Czech public life published an open letter called "Žalujeme" ("We accuse", similar to Émile Zola's "J'accuse ...!", which helped end the infamous Dreyfus affair in France 100 years before), namely Pavel Dostál, Táňa Fischerová, František Janouch, Karel Jech, Květa Jechová, Svatopluk Karásek, Jaroslav Kořán, Dana Němcová, Karel Schwarzenberg, Jiřina Šiklová, Věněk Šilhán, Libuše Šilhánová, Jaromír Štětina, Petruška Šustrová.
In April 2006, Dr. Yekta Uzunoglu was presented the František Kriegel prize for civic courage.
In March 2007, Mr. Uzunoglu started an 11 days long hunger strike against his prolonged process, and many important public figures, including former president Václav Havel, joined him symbolically for one day. On 29. March 2007, Mr. Uzunoglu was sentenced to two years in prison, which he immediately appealed, describing it as "fashizoid" justice. Amnesty International declared their support of Mr. Uzunoglu. On 31. July 2007, Prague's Court of appeals heard the appeal and finally dropped all charges. http://zpravy.idnes.cz/odvolaci-soud-osvobodil-po-13-letech-uzunoglua-f4d-/krimi.aspx?c=A070731_131539_krimi_mad http://ekolist.cz/cz/zpravodajstvi/zpravy/nadace-charty-77-vyhlasuje-cenu-frantiska-kriegla http://yektauzunoglu.com/2017/03/05/o-knize-islamisticky-trojsky-kun-v-ceske-republice-yekta-uzunoglu/ http://ekurd.net/mismas/articles/misc2007/12/kurdsworldwide268.htm http://yektauzunoglu.com/en/2017/05/15/islamic-trojan-horse-in-czech-republic-i/
2012 - The trial regarding the Claire Uzunoglu's daughter Human Ethics - Consequently I am sending this article to Law Enforcement Authorities as the Incentive to initiate criminal prosecution I already know that nobody is going to investigate and as maximum I will be accused of false accusation… Look at the current state of the cesspit into which even children are thrown to rot… Definitely the unanswered question it is why exactly those persons were chosen by the Judge of the District Court of Prague-East District JUDr Alois Cihlar as to serve as experts if there are hundreds of certified experts in Czech Republic. Despite of the fact JUDr Cihlar chose those two who played an important (in positive or negative sense) role in 1990s in the case imposed on me that entered the history of the Czech Justice. Was it just a coincidence? If so, it would be an absolutely incredible and improbable coincidence! http://uzunoglu.blog.idnes.cz/blog.aspx?c=603368 http://uzunoglu.blog.idnes.cz/blog.aspx?c=603368 http://uzunoglu.blog.idnes.cz/blog.aspx?c=603252 http://uzunoglu.blog.idnes.cz/blog.aspx?c=603188 http://uzunoglu.blog.idnes.cz/blog.aspx?c=602752 http://yektauzunoglu.com/en/2017/05/15/human-ethics-ii/ http://uzunoglu.blog.idnes.cz/blog.aspx?c=604650
