Turkey: Osman Murat Ulke: conscientious objector imprisoned for life
Osman Murat Ülke is the first conscientious objector in Turkey to openly declare his refusal to perform military service for reasons of conscience. He has been sentenced to imprisonment but still refuses to report to his military unit. Consequently further trial proceedings have been opened against him and will continue indefinitely, effectively condemning him to life imprisonment.
