Follow-up to medical letter writing action (EUR 44/13/93, 25 February) - Turkey: Dr Hasan Kaya and Metin Can
The bodies of Metin Can, a lawyer and president of the Turkish Human Rights Association in Elazig, southeast Turkey, and his friend, Dr Hasan Kaya, were found on 27 February 1993, a week after they "disappeared". The bodies, bearing signs of torture, were found under a bridge about 120 km from Elazig. Autopsies were conducted on the bodies in both Tunceli and Elazig but the results have apparently not been published.
