Turkey: Prisoners of Conscience / Unfair Trial
Mehmet Desde, Mehmet Bakir, Hüseyin Habip Taskin, Maksut Karadag, Serafettin Parmak, Metin Özgünay, Ömer Güner and Ergün Yildirim are facing imminent imprisonment, solely for their non-violent political beliefs. All the men were convicted following an unfair trial, largely on the basis of statements allegedly extracted under torture. If the eight are imprisoned, Amnesty International will consider them to be prisoners of conscience.
