Law Society deeply saddened by death of lawyer Ebru Timtik

Ebru TimtikIt is with great sadness that we have received news of the death of lawyer Ebru Timtik in Turkey.

She had been on hunger strike while in detention, protesting against a lack of fair trial guarantees in her own case and the cases of others in Turkey.

We previously sent two joint submissions to UN special rapporteurs, urgently asking for their support in calling on Turkish authorities to release her.

We joined other bars and law societies from around the world in honouring Ebru’s life and work in an obituary, published on the day of her funeral in a Turkish newspaper.
