(en) Turkey, 21st day on hunger strike! Objector Tarhan brought to the prison in Sivas [tr]

Date Tue, 14 Jun 2005 13:56:41 +0300

On Thursday, 9th of June, Mehmet Tarhan, who was "said
to be" released from the court in which he was tried
with the charge of "insubordination to the orders",
was transferred to the troop in Tokat by military police
on the same day, with the "central" order of General
Staff ASAL bypassing "so-called" Sivas Recruiting
Office. Mehmet continuing his attitude of rejecting
orders such as to wear military uniform was at first
sent to the Military Unit infirmary. Rejecting
military doctors' intervention, yesterday (13th of
June) Tarhan is transferred to Sivas and following his
examination being taken by the military prosecutor, he
arrested and again sent back to Sivas Military Prison.
On the other hand, hunger strike of
conscientious/total objector Mehmet Tarhan is on 21st
day today!

UPDATE: According to the latest news, today Mehmet
Tarhan is taken to Sivas Military Hospital. However,
yet it's not precisely known that why he was sent
there and in which unit he is held at the moment.
