TURKEYHamza Güneri, aged 36
Amnesty International has learned that Hamza Güneri was brought before a judge
on 26 September 1995, was charged and then committed to A_r_ prison. This
information came to light after intervention by the Turkish Human Rights
Ministry which repeatedly telephoned A_r_ Police Headquarters.
The Anti-Terror Branch at A_r_ Police Headquarters had previously claimed that
Hamza Güneri escaped from police custody. He had been held for 15 days.
Nothing is known so far about the charges brought against him or his treatment
in detention at A_r_ Police Headquarters.
No further action is required at this stage. Many thanks to all who sent appeals
on Hamza Güneri's behalf.
