Further information on UA 387/90 (EUR 44/133/90, 24 September) - Fear of Torture
TURKEY: Hamza Yalçin, aged 34
+ four others
Amnesty International has now learned that Hamza Yalçin, who carries a valid
Swedish passport, has been seen by his family. He is apparently on hunger-strike
in protest against his detention. No further action is required on his behalf.
It has also been learned that four people (not two, as stated earlier)
were detained together with Hamza Yalçin, but nothing more is known about their
situation. Pending further information becoming available, no further action
is requested on their behalf. Thank you to all who sent appeals.
