Turkey: Human rights defender tortured in Tunceli
Ali Ekber Kaya, President of the Turkish Human Rights Association branch in Tunceli, was detained on 23 March 1995. After his release he alleged that he was tortured in custody and lodged a complaint with the court in Tunceli. No decision has yet been taken on whether to prosecute over this. Ali Ekber Kaya is reportedly still being harassed by police and the Tunceli branch of the Human Rights Association remains closed.
