After spending almost 8 months in jail on unjust charges, an Istanbul court ordered that Amnesty Turkey Chair Taner Kiliç be released on bail on January 31st. In unprecedented flip flop later that day the court overturned its decision and Taner was re-arrested and returned to detention as his friends, family and colleagues waited for him to be released. This is a cruel and disgraceful move by the Turkish government. Their continued crackdown on human rights defenders in Turkey is an affront to justice.
We need you to take action to help free Taner. Here is how you can get involved:
1. TAKE ACTION NOW
Sign and share our action demanding that Taner be released immediately and unconditionally
2. Organize in your community
