Prisoner suffers torture in Aksaray prison
Mehmet Siraç Aslan remains in Aksaray T Type prison despite having served his sentence. Aslan has been repeatedly tortured.
Mehmet Siraç Aslan (22) remains in Aksaray T Type Closed Prison despite having served his sentence. Aslan was charged with "being a member of a terrorist organization" and should have been released in October 2020.
In a weekly phone call with his family, Aslan told about the rights violations in prison. Serkan Aslan said that his brother was kept in a solitary cell.
He said his brother has told him the following: “I am constantly being put in solitary confinement. They didn't take me out to make the phone call I am entitled to last week. They did not take me to the infirmary. In response, I cut my hand. Later they took me to the infirmary and the chief officer there battered me in front of the doctor. My nose is broken and my right eye is swollen and I still have bruises on my body. My psychology is broken. I am not taken to the hospital because they don’t want me to get the assault report. This is not the first time I was beaten."
