L?tif Huseynov, president of the Committee for the Prevention of Torture held press conference

In a briefing to the press on Monday, law professor L?tif Huseynov, President of the Committee for the Prevention of Torture, said that it is Mr. Ocalan’s fundamental right to meet his lawyers.

“It is a person’s inalienable and primary right to see his lawyers to avoid unfair judgment, ill and insulting treatment”, CPT President said concerning the situation of Ocalan.

Concerning the hunger strike going on in Turkish prisons, Huseynov said that they were watching the protest with deep concern.

Asked about the fact that the CPT delegation did not go to Imral? island during its trip to Turkey 21 to 28 June 2012, Huseynov said that; “During the visit, we gave priority to allegations of ill-treatment of juvenile prisoners at Pozant? Prison and others but we also conveyed our expectations and concerns over Imral? to Ankara”.

According to reports received, CPT will convey a criticism and expectation report to Turkey following a series of consultations in the coming week. The Committee is expected to make an ordinary visit to Turkey next year.
