Unsanitary conditions and deceased prisoners in prisons

The year 2022 has arrived with alarming news from Turkish prisoners that the regime continues to hold in severe conditions. Finally, senior prisoners, an 82-year-old patient, Mr. Yusuf Bekmezci, and 84-year-old Nusret Mugla were not released despite their progressive deteriorations in their health, and both seniors have passed away in prison cells. The treatment that Mr. Bekmezci and Mr. Mugla were subjected to also revealed the current situation of many patients in similar conditions.

ASSEDEL communicates to and urges relevant EU institutions to release a public statement to stop brutal practices in Turkish prisons.
