UN REPORT: RELIABLE INFORMATION ON ARBITRARY ARREST AND TORTURE IN TURKEY

The annual report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) was announced at a press conference in Geneva. Zeid bin Ra’ad al-Hussein, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said that respect for fundamental rights continues to deteriorate in Turkey. The report said: “The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights has reached the reliable information that a vast number of people are arbitrarily discharged from their jobs, civil society organizations are arbitrarily closed, those arbitrarily taken into custody are arrested on general charges in relation to terrorist organizations, the detainees are tortured while in custody, the freedoms of expression and movement are restricted, private property is arbitrarily confiscated and the families of the suspects as a whole are targeted.” It is stated that in addition to the main human rights report, the UN will also produce a more detailed report on the human rights situation in Turkey under the state of emergency conditions.
