Dr Münsif Çetin telephoned Amnesty International one hour after his release
today, 22 August, to tell that he was free and well, and to thank all who had
appealed on his behalf.
Although he has frequent kidney problems, he did not need medication
immediately, and he had not been tortured. Detention conditions, however, were
harsh and not enough food was provided. No charges were brought against him.
No further action by the UA Network is requested.
