Many of you may have heard, or seen reports in the media, about the incident that took place at STARTTS last week, where two of our staff members were attacked outside our Carramar office. Everyone here was obviously very shocked and upset about the incident, and concerned for the welfare of their colleagues. The good news is that both women are now doing very well, and are set to make a full recovery.
STARTTS is concerned about the arrest, detention and trial of Professor Sebnem Fincanci, president of the Human Rights Foundation Turkey, and as a member supports the call by the International Rehabilitation Council for Torture Victims (IRCT) for the government of Turkey to immediately drop all charges.
