Ahmet Kösemehmeto_lu, Hasan Yüksel and Erkan Çelebi were formally arrested
at Istanbul State Security Court on 4 May 1993 and are now being held in
Sa_malc_lar Prison.
Those arrested are no longer at risk of torture and so no further action is
required from the Urgent Action network at this stage. Amnesty International
will inform the network as soon as information is available concerning the
charges against those arrested and how they were treated in police detention.
The family of Ahmet Kösemehmeto_lu have sent thanks to all those who participated
