Turkey: Joint statement: METU Pride human rights defenders must be acquitted at upcoming trial

On 8 October, 19 LGBTI+ human rights defenders will return to court for what is expected to be the final hearing in the unfair trial they faced for organising and participating in a peaceful Pride march on the campus of Ankara’s Middle East Technical University (METU) on 10 May 2019. The undersigned human rights organisations call for the acquittal of all the defendants in the absence of any evidence of criminal conduct, and to bring an end to the series of postponements of the trial hearings, which have spanned over more than two years now.
