, Index number: EUR 44/8567/2018

Amnesty International calls on the Turkish authorities to initiate a prompt, impartial, independent and effective investigation into the allegations of excessive use of force, torture and other ill-treatment committed by police officers against a group of high school students and graduates, following a peaceful demonstration in Istanbul on 8 June 2018. Police officers suspected of responsibility must be brought to justice in fair trials. Amnesty International also calls on the authorities not to prosecute students, who were released but remain under investigation for violating the Law on Meetings and Demonstrations.
