“IT IS A CRIME TO TRY TO JUSTIFY TORTURE”

The İstanbul Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office’s statement which justifies the death of teacher Gökhan Açıkkollu due to torture under police custody sparks outrage. The Prosecutor’s Office’s statement says that ‘all the claims that he was tortured to death are propaganda of terrorism’.

The chair of Human Rights Foundation of Turkey Şebnem Korur Fincancı criticised the statement and said “Torture is absolutely forbidden. It is a crime to try to justify torture by saying terrorism.”
