Pressures on Conscientious Objectors in Turkey Continue Increasingly!

Posted by Fredsvenn den mars 30, 2008

To The International Public Opinion;

Today at13:00 am, one other conscientious objector Halil Savda who had already spent months in jail for being a CO was arrested after taking place in a demonstration today against the military prosecution of the formerly arrested conscientious objector , Ismail Saygi. Our friend is now in a police station and will probably be sent to a military prison. Same vicious circle that awaits all COs in Turkey: recruiting office Chaplain – Military Court- Military Prison.

Previously Halil was put in Corlu Military Prison in 2004 and again in June 2006 for keeping up his stand against military service He was tortured and threathened with death.

Right now he is being held in Beyoglu Police Station (a downtown major station notoriously known for maltreatment) and he will be sent to military prosecution tomorrow morning

We are concerned about him and all antimilitarists in Turkey.

We expect and hope for the support of international public opinion and that of all people concerned.

Conscientious Objection is a Basic Human Right!

Freedom to Ismail Saygi and Halil Savda!
