Seriously ill-prisoner Abdullah Turan, who was not released from Metris Closed Prison in Turkey, was hospitalized and operated on after passing blood from his bladder. His father Mehmet Zahit Turan was informed that no one could accompany him to the hospital.
He was not released despite a report by the Forensic Medicine Institute stating that: “He cannot stay in prison”. Upon hearing about this violation of his rights, Mehmet Zahit Turan’s lawyer applied to the Prison Prosecutor’s Office. After Turan was hospitalized, he was placed in a quarantine ward in Metris Closed Prison in İstanbul.
