Send lawyers Ramazan Demir and Ayşe Acinikli a postcard in prison!
After the initial arrest and release of nine lawyers in Istanbul between 16 – 19 March 2016, new arrest warrants were issued against four of them on 22 March. On April 6, lawyers Ramazan Demir and Ayşe Acinikli were re-arrested. The arrests seem to be connected to their work as lawyers, and therefore we have called on the authorities for their immediate release. Will you also support these lawyers? Send them a postcard in prison! Address details:
