What's This?

An international human rights group has claimed that those who were detained in relation to the failed coup attempt were tortured, starved, and even raped while inside official and unofficial detention facilities.


The international human rights group Amnesty International has called on the Turkish government to allow independent monitors inside state-controlled detention centers across the country to ensure that the soldiers are treated well.

Inhumane Treatment

In a statement, the group issued a plea after receiving reports of maltreatment of detainees linked to the abortive coup. According to the group, there are at least 10,000 individuals detained in different official and unofficial detention facilities across the country.

John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International’s Europe chief, in a statement, has called on the Turkish government to allow groups visit these facilities. Dalhuisen added it is imperative that the Turkish government immediately stop the inhumane practices and the reports of maltreatment of its detainees.

“Reports of abuse including beatings and rape in detention are extremely alarming, especially given the scale of detentions that we have seen in the past week. The grim details that we have documented are just a snapshot of the abuses that might be happening in places of detention,” Dalhuisen said.

State of Emergency

Meanwhile, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan issued his first state of emergency decree for more than a week after the failed coup to gain control of the country. In doing so, Erdogan ordered shutting down private schools, charities, and offices to pave way for the country’s re-stabilization, Reuters reported.
