Turkey: Memorandum to the Turkish Government
After elections last year, the government restated its commitment to further legislative reform and advancing guarantees of human rights and freedoms. However, in 2007 human rights suffered a regression. Violations of human rights increased and measures to combat them remained insufficient. Amnesty International believes that the current government must take action on the issues described in this document, in accordance with the recommendations made, in order to achieve lasting, substantive improvements.
