Turkey: Torture allegations must be independently investigated
Amnesty International has written to the Turkish authorities regarding credible allegations that two men, Osman Şiban and Servet Turgut, were subjected to torture or other ill-treatment after being detained by gendarmes on 11 September 2020 in Çatak, a district in the eastern province of Van. Serious allegations that must be promptly, independently and impartially investigated include a claim that the two men were thrown off a helicopter. Medical reports seen by Amnesty International state that they sustained injuries consistent with falling from a height.
