Our Group’s Letters of Concern Helped Release Sevil Dalkilic of Turkey.
Sevil Dalkiliç is the victim of a grave miscarriage of justice, apparently targeted because of her political and professional activities. Sevil Dalkiliç is a lawyer who practised in Kaman, a small town between Ankara and K¹rsehir.
She was secretary of the local branch of SHP (Socialdemocrat Populist Party) in Kaman and administrator of the local halkevi (People’s Houses – cultural and educational centres).
In 1996, she was sentenced to 30 years’ imprisonment after legal proceedings which were marked by serious abuse of investigative and detention procedures, including the use of torture.
The Global Importune letter signing group began sending letters of concern on behalf of Sevil Dalkiliç to officials in the government of Turkey sometime around August 1997.
She was RELEASED on November 1, 2002.
