Turkey: Children at risk of torture, death in custody and "disappearance"

, Index number: EUR 44/144/1996

Amnesty International has investigated a number of cases in which children and juveniles are reported to have been the victims of human rights violations. This report documents a number of these most recent individual cases, drawing upon the testimony of the children themselves, of eye-witnesses and of medical or other corroborating evidence. Allegations that human right violations have been committed against children and juveniles in Turkey continue to emerge with such regularity that Amnesty International is obliged to conclude that the Turkish authorities are not doing all in their power to protect children.
