Amnesty International released a statement on Sunday claiming the Turkish authorities were using torture as a method to intimidate the detainees being held for allegedly taking part in the July 15th military coup.
Citing individual monitors, Amnesty International asserted that the Turkish police were torturing people in their prisons, denying food and water to many of the detainees for several days.
In addition to starving the prisoners, the Turkish police were also raping, hog-tying, and beating the inmates, while intentionally banning medical examiners from diagnosing and treating anyone.
Over the weekend, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suspended the laws set forth by the European Convention on Human Rights, causing an uproar in the international community.
The chilling details of this report have just begun to scratch the surface, as the Turkish authorities are doing their best to hide any wrongdoings on their part.
