Turkey: Recommendations for action to combat systematic violations of human rights
This report summarizes AI's concerns about human rights violations in the context of the 10-year-old conflict between Turkish Government Forces and the PKK. As security imperatives dominate, the impunity of all branches of the security forces is reinforced, resulting in a deterioration in the human rights situation throughout the rest of the country. Among the violations dealt with here are "disappearances", political killings, torture and the imprisonment of prisoners of conscience. Abuses by PKK guerrillas are also reported.
