when they were detained. Consequently, they were registered under false names.
Ziya Ulusoy was registered as Mustafa Erdo_an and Mehmet Üstünda_ as Mustafa
Amnesty International does not know what false name was used by Celal Meral,
but it can be assumed that his true identity is known to the police by now.

registered and may be held for 15 days starting from 8 November 1992.
