All those named above, detained after the assassination of General Temel Cingöz,
23 May 1991, (with the exception of Ali Kaçmaz) were brought before the Public
Prosecutor and formally arrested on 7 June 1991. They are now in Adana E-type
prison, awaiting trial.
Dr Cavit Olgun has stated that he was subjected to a "certain degree
of pressure for the first two days" but that after this time he was not
ill-treated. It is not known what treatment the other detainees underwent while
in custody, but all those arrested (including Dr Olgun) rejected the statements
they made to the police as having been made under duress. More information
will follow. Meanwhile the fear of torture is now past, and no further action
is required at this moment. Thanks to all who sent appeals.
