, Index number: EUR 44/045/1999

There is grave concern for the safety of 41-year-old Selami Altay, who was abducted on 26 June 1999 from Gazi Antep E Type Prison, where he had been visiting a relative. Other visitors at the prison saw three armed men in civilian clothes seize him and force him into a black car. Three hours later police from his home town of Suruç raided his home and seized several documents. Police in Gazi Antep and Suruç have denied any knowledge of the abduction and raid.
