CPT IMRALI VISIT
Sharing their concern about the situation of PKK Leader Abdullah Öcalan, the committee's statement included the following statements: “A delegation formed by the CPT recently went to İmralı Island Prison to meet with Abdullah Öcalan. However, the delegation could not meet with Öcalan. Although it has been a long time since the last meeting with Abdullah Öcalan, none of the members of the delegation saw Öcalan.
