Description

The sheer number of 228,137 individuals taken into custody and detained on remand as a result, and over 79,774 arrests  since the attempted coup with little or no clarity about the charges, is highly disturbing. The occupational profile of those detained reveals that the majority are members of the judiciary, public officials, members of the parliament, mayors, journalists, human rights defenders, academics, teachers, lawyers, businessmen, students and members of the military. From the number of detained persons, including immediately in the aftermath of the attempted coup, it is evident that reasonable suspicion, an essential requirement for the imposition of pretrial detention, has not been present at every stage of individual detention.

When the AKP came into power, this number was around 59,429, or only one-fourth of those currently deprived of liberty.

The denial of consular services and the related deprivations for Turkish citizens living abroad since the attempted coup of July 15, 2016, includes the cancellation and confiscation of passports, the refusal to extend the validity of passports and the refusal to provide nationality IDs or passports to children born to Turkish citizens abroad.
While the full extent of the actions of the Turkish government in regard to the arbitrary deprivation of citizenship is not known, this is certainly an increasingly serious problem. The Journalists and Writers Foundation documented 116 cases of denial of passports and nationality IDs for newborns in 16 countries as of September 2017.
