Turkey: Independent Monitors Must be Allowed to Access Detainees Amid Torture Allegations

Amnesty International

Amnesty International has gathered credible evidence that detainees in Turkey are being subjected to beatings and torture, including rape, in official and unofficial detention centres in the country.

The organization is calling for independent monitors to be given immediate access to detainees in all facilities in the wake of the coup attempt, which include police headquarters, sports centres and courthouses. More than 10,000 people have been detained since the failed coup.

No hypocrisy please. We all are very aware that the US refused monitors access to Gitmo where prisoners were being tortured!
