Monitoring of the trial of Serdar Küni

Serdar Kuni after his release

La Transicionera participated in an international human rights delegation to observe the trial against Dr Serdar Küni in Sirnak, in the south-east of Turkey, on 24 April 2017. Küni was accused of "supporting and assisting a terrorist organisation" - the PKK - because he attended to patients without asking questions, thus complying with his obligations as a medical professional. Even though Küni was sentenced to four years and two months of imprisonment, the judge ordered his provisional release pending the appeal trial.
