Two days ago, on Friday, Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor issued an arrest warrant for the other 4 human rights activists who were released on bail; Nalan Erkem of the Citizen’s Assembly, Şeyhmus Özbekli of the Rights Initiative, Nejat Taştan of the Equal Rights Watch Association and İlknur Üstün of the Women’s Coalition.

Nalan Erkem was therewith detained from her house in Istanbul Friday night and İlknur Üstün from her home in Ankara on Saturday. Both have been remanded in custody and sent to prison on Sunday.

In a statement on the detention orders against four human rights defenders on Saturday, John Dalhuisen, Amnesty International’s Director for Europe said: “With this cruel and retrograde step, Turkey has underlined its growing reputation as an indiscriminate jailer of civil society activists and a stranger to the rule of law.”
