Turkey’s Justice Minister, Bekir Bozdag, tweeted on Monday that Amnesty International’s claims of human rights violations against the July 15th coup prisoners was in fact false.

Bozdag’s denial of any human rights violations comes just 24 hours after Amnesty International issued a report that indicated coup prisoners were being subjected to different methods of torture, including rape and violence.

“There has not been any torture or assault of detainees in custody,” Bozdag stated on Monday.

“The claims of torture and assault are part of a misinformation campaign formed by members of the Fethullah Gulen’s terrorist organization,” he added.

Amnesty International alleges that they have “evidence” of detainees being tortured, raped, starved, and beaten by the Turkish authorities.

Turkish Police & Army are well known for their tortures, executions, assaults, abuse & rapes. It’s part of their “culture”.
