Turkey: medical letter writing action - Prosecution of doctors Dr H Zeki UZUN

, Index number: EUR 44/024/2000

Amnesty International is deeply concerned about the prosecution of Dr H Zeki Uzun, a gynaecologist and member of the Izmir Medical Chamber Council of Doctors, for "aiding an illegal organization and sheltering its members" by providing treatment to two of his patients (because Dr Uzun can speak fluent Kurdish, he is frequently consulted by Kurdish women). He was detained on 19 October 1999 for one week and has so far appeared in court on 19 January, 24 February and 11 April 2000.
