” Moderate ” Turkey controlled by brutal dictator

If you were in any doubt about the status of Turkey this article will remove it as it tells you about the thousands of Turkish soldiers who are being raped and starved as punishment for the failed coup against President Dictator Erdogan. According to Amnesty International they are also being left without water in terrible cramped conditions.

Pictures have emerged on social media, reportedly of soldiers being held in Turkey

Pictures have emerged on social media, reportedly of soldiers being held in Turkey.
The human rights group said it has “credible evidence” that around 10,000 Turkish soldiers face the severe punishments for their part of the failed military coup against president Erdogan.

Victims are being held in makeshift cells, such as stables and sports halls, and are being tortured and held in stress positions for 48 hours, the group said.

Amnesty’s European director John Dalhuisen said: “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.”

A lawyer working at the Caglayan Courthouse in Istanbul said she saw a detainee attempting to jump out of a sixth floor window and another banging his head against a wall.

The non-profit organisation has asked for access to prisoners who have been rounded up and arrested in the wake of the failed coup.

Dalhuisen said: “It is absolutely imperative that the Turkish authorities halt these abhorrent practices and allow international monitors to visit all these detainees in the places they are being held.”

Erdogan may have been democratically elected but his actions are the actions of a dictator. In his fear he is lashing out at not only soldiers but police, civil servants, journalists, judges, teachers and now children! Erdogan is an Islamist and his reign is the beginning of the end of democracy in Turkey. No longer can Turkey be held up as an example of moderate Islam. Under his leadership it is now a brutal, Islamic theocracy and Sharia Law will eventually be enforced, mark my words.

Turkey has arrested 62 children and accused them of treason after the botched military coup last week. The youngsters, aged 14 to 17, were from Kuleli Military school, the oldest of its kind in Istanbul.They have reportedly been thrown in jail and are not allowed to speak to their parents.

Their families say that just before the coup the children were invited to a school cocktail party but were made to parade with guns, dress in army uniforms and guard their campus.

‘Our child has never held a gun before,’ she told the Telegraph.
‘They were used, they were forced to do this.’

Families fear their children will be denied fair trial and say they only had two minutes to testify at a preliminary hearing in a packed courthouse which their parents were not allowed to enter.

Another distraught mother added: ‘They are just children. They are innocent. The state needs to separate the guilty ones from the innocent ones.’
One lawyer representing three of the students told the Telegraph: ‘Some families haven’t heard anything from their children for seven days – children at the age of 14 or 15. That’s not something that should be happening even in a state of emergency.’
Turkish authorities have also issued warrants for the detention of 42 journalists, private broadcaster NTV reported.
Well known commentator and former parliamentarian Nazli Ilicak was among those for whom a warrant was issued.

…Turkish authorities have suspended, detained or placed under investigation more than 60,000 soldiers, police, judges, teachers, civil servants and others in the days following the attempted coup.

…EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said today that Turkey is in no position to become a European Union member any time soon.
He added that all negotiations for it to join will stop immediately if it reintroduces the death penalty.
‘I believe that Turkey, in its current state, is not in a position to become a member any time soon and not even over a longer period,’ Juncker said on French television France 2.
He said that a country that included the death penalty in its legislative arsenal had no place in the European Union.
