, Index number: EUR 44/024/1993

AI is concerned about Cemal Cakmak and other prisoners who have been on hunger-strike in Yozgat Prison since mid-February. The prisoners were allegedly beaten after the discovery of the escape of 18 prisoners from Nevsehir Prison and were transferred to Yozgat, where they were allegedly beaten again in the presence of a prison doctor, who reportedly later refused to treat injuries sustained during the beatings. Cemal Cakmak, arrested in June 1992 and thought to be a member of the illegal TIKKO armed group, is said to be in poor health and not to be receiving adequate medical care.
