Kemal Yaklav was formally arrested on or about 13 October and is now being held in Mardin E-type Prison, on charges of assisting members of an armed organization. Islam Bal's detention at Diyarbakır Police Headquarters has now been acknowledged. Hakkı Bozkuş is still in police custody. Appeals for these three individuals may now cease.


Salih Tekin, Hatip Yıldırım, Hikmet Oĝuz and Seyhmuz Eroĝlu remain "disappeared". Please continue appeals on their behalf as specified in the original action.


Please note: The Salih Tekin in question is not a former journalist as originally indicated. This arose from a confusion with another person of the same name and date of birth.
