Dear Minister of Justice,
On 21 June, an Istanbul court failed again to release Taner Kılıç, despite spending over a year in jail without evidence of any crime. While Taner’s family waited for him to walk out of jail, his arbitrary imprisonment continues. A newly released police report shows that there is no evidence of wrongdoing by Taner. Treating him and his family in this manner is not only unjust - it is cruel.
I am writing to you now urging you to ensure Taner is freed immediately.
More than a million people around the world have called for Taner’s release. We will not stop until he is free. Defending human rights is not a crime.
