Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights: Liz Throssell Location: Geneva Date: 7 July 2017 Subject: (1) Turkey (2) China (3) Cambodia

(1) Turkey

We have received reports that eight Turkish human rights defenders and two international experts were detained on the Büyükada Island near Istanbul on Wednesday 5 July while taking part in a training workshop.

We fear they are now at significant risk of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.
