The Diyarbakır State Security Court prosecutor has confirmed that Hakkı Bozkuş is in police custody at Diyarbakır Police Headquarters. Until this confirmation no news had been heard of him since 2 October 1995, when he was detained after an identity check at the Nargileciler café in Diyarbakır.


Appeals on Hakkı Bozkuş' behalf may now cease, but please continue appeals for the other people named above who remain "disappeared".
