Further information on EXTRA 58/92 (EUR 44/56/92, 1 July 1992) - Fear of Torture
Turkey:Adem Kepeneklio_lu, aged 28
Amnesty International has received information that Adem Kepeneklio_lu, a
political prisoner serving a life sentence who escaped from prison in 1988
and was recptured in Istanbul on 28 June 1992, was held for one day at Eyüp
Police Station where allegedly he was beaten and sustained a serious graze
to one elbow when he fell to the ground. He was also hit with a gun on the
right side of his back and it is thought that he may have suffered a cracked
or broken rib. The following day he was transferred to the Anti-Terror Branch
of Istanbul Police Headquarters where he was not ill treated. There he was
permitted to see his lawyer twice for brief interviews in the presence of police
officers. On 13 July Adem Kepeneklio_lu was formally arrested by Istanbul State
Security Court and committed to Sa_malc_lar Prison. Because of his previous
escape he has now lost his right to reduction of sentence granted under the
Anti-Terror Law.

Station in Istanbul on 28 June 1992 is investigated and that those responsible
