On 25 February, conscientious objector Murat Kanatlı was imprisoned for 10 days. He refused to pay a 500 TL fine (approximately 165 Euros), after a military court in Lefkoşa/Nicosia (territory of northern Cyprus) had found him guilty of ‘noncompliance with the mobilization call’ as a result of his refusal to take part in military training.
