AI, HRW, IRC, MSF, NATO, and the EU should be allowed immediate access to all arrested and/or detained individuals since the attempted coup.

Turkey has had miserable prisons all along. I had not heard of torture recently, but it would not surprise me, if Kurd prisoners were badly treated to gain information or just for fun. The Middle East is not known for humane treatment in their jails. It is very much like Russia, I imagine, but maybe not quite as bad. At the present, however, the situation must be horrible.

Not a single comment from any of the UK and EU folks who dominate this sub-forum.

Makes one wonder.

Private Umut Tuna just finished basic training. The 20-year-old soldier was beginning his 12-month compulsory service in the Turkish Military.On July 15th, a command came down to prepare for a drill, says Umut's sister Emel Koken. That drill turned out to be a coup attempt. Now his fate and that of over 1,600 conscripts hangs in the balance.
"He called me from a police station," she says. "He wasn't aware of the coup. He was told he was going out for a drill. He is very scared."

Just disgusting. Like Lambs to the slaughter. Say goodbye to secular Turkey and say hello to political Islam. It's a crying shame.

To be honest, should we be surprised of such actions? I for one, am in no way surprised. Political Islam is the scurge of this century...
