Turkey: End sexual violence against women in custody!
Sexual assaults on women in custody were reported to Amnesty International throughout 2002. The cases in this report illustrate that women in Turkey continue to experience torture and ill-treatment which is gender discriminatory in nature; that is, state agents and other perpetrators target women for sexual violence because of their gender. Although all women are at risk of violence, Amnesty International is concerned that some groups of women may be at particular risk, including those targeted for reasons of their ethnic identity.
