Dear friends,

As known, three members of IAMI was being accused and judged by the general 
military court of violating the article 155 "alienating people from military 
service" by a press decleration which was organised in order to support 
Osman Murat Ulke on the 15 of May 1999 when he was in prison.

Yesterday (on 5th of December) the final desicion trial took place in Ankara 
General Military Court. And I am vey glad to anounce that all the three 
accused friends were acquitted from the case. The desicion can be named as a 
small victory against the military courts which can judge civilian people 
because none of the accuseds and lawyers made any kind of formal defence in 
the trials.

An international delegation of three persons (Hans Van Heijningen from
XminusY Solidarity Fund-Holland, Sarah Woodhouse from War Resisters
International- UK, Yiannis Glarnetatzis from EBCO-Greece) attended
the trial as observers and did not face any negative reaction from the court 
and military staff.

IAMI thanks for all your solidarity.

King Regards,
Uygar Abaci on behalf of IAMI (Istanbul Anti-Militarist Initiative)
