Human Rights Watch released its 2023 Human Rights Report. As it has been done for years, they wrote in the Report: “There are no victims in Turkey except those who have experienced political and ethnic victimization”. Blindness based on the victim’s identity has been revealed again!
We know and see the political and ethnic grievances in Turkey. However, while two Kurdish citizens who were ill-treated in custody were mentioned by name, there is not a single line was explained about the thousands of members of the GÜLEN MOVEMENT who were killed in custody, exposed to naked search, harassment and rape in the Report..
This reveals how badly and biased HRW REPORT 2023 was prepared. At the same time, the report ignored the violation decisions made by both the ECtHR and the United Nations in the relevant year 2022.
Dear HRW Why did you ignore the decisions of the ECHR and the United Nations ?
