Yavuz Bingöl (m), aged 25, Serdar Nalbant (m), aged 30, Metin Atilla (m), aged 31, Fuat Keskin (m), aged 44, Hayrettin Gulen (m), aged 28 Cetin Harmanci (m), aged 26, Erdogan Kandemir (m), aged 39 Habib Uzun (m), aged 35 were reportedly tortured during their custody over the last three days at Anti-Terror Headquarters in southeastern Turkey. Yavuz Bingöl was taken for treatment at the Bingöl State hospital, believed to be related to torture he experienced in custody. All eight men were taken before a judge and remanded into custody on 27 September. They have not yet seen a lawyer, and are therefore at risk of further torture and ill-treatment.
