, Index number: EUR 44/030/2002

Salih Y lar, a youth member of the legal pro-Kurdish party HADEP, was reportedly tortured by police on 14 May, after he was detained in Diyarbakir, in southeast Turkey. After he told his lawyers what had happened, police detained him again and told him that the next time they took him into custody he would not be seen again. Amnesty International believes he is in grave danger of being tortured again, or killed.
