TURKEY: Taner Kilic Re-Arrested - EMAIL ACTION

Amnesty International, USA, Feb 1, 2018

Yesterday, we shared that our dear Amnesty Turkey colleague Taner Kilic had finally been granted release on bail after 8 gruelling months in jail.

In a devastating flip flop for Taner; while his family excitedly waited for him to walk out of prison and into their arms, he was re-arrested and taken back into custody. The authorities are taking him to a court in Izmir today.

We're stunned and outraged. This is a cruel and unacceptable turn of events for Taner and his loved ones.

Right now, we need to come together to show our strength and unwavering solidarity for Taner and all human rights defenders.
