Coming Soon: Petition of a (arrested) lawyer who has been tortured for days

The Arrested Lawyers Initiative reached petition of an arrested lawyer who has been tortured for days under custody of police. The victim lawyer says in his petition  -written to the judicial authorities- “I’m still afraid of quoting names of tormentor police officers”

#They threatened me with bringing my wife and daughters to the police HQ and to rape and abuse me in front of their eyes.

#I was beaten for days. #I was threatened, being told “Only your #corpse can leave here (Police HQ) without signing this statement.”

#The police officers said “If your lawyer comes to interview you again, we’ll arrest him too” and ordered me “to tell him not to come again”

#A police was shouting often as “I want to kill all (suspects) in this aisle”

#Police were shouting “Don’t look my face, bastard; speak by looking to the floor, fuck” while slapping my nape and head.

#14 people in 9m2 room; Sitting and sleeping is forbidden.

#Interrogation in the midnight without lawyer.

#Police intervention in lawyer-client interview to prevent torture from telling lawyer.

#Torturer police officers entered to the hearing room and stayed there to prevent torture from telling to the peace criminal judge.
