Victims of human rights violations perpetrated by the police and gendarmerie in Turkey continue to face an entrenched culture of impunity. This report looks at the persisting impunity for grave human rights violations: torture, ill-treatment and killings. Particular attention is paid to the process of investigating and prosecuting police and gendarmes. The focus of this report is on cases which have a continuing life in Turkish courts in the present or are currently at investigation stage. This report does not address the issue of establishing mechanisms to confront the overwhelming legacy of past impunity.
