Ragip Zarakolu And Human Rights In Turkey

EDM number 2414 in 2010-12, proposed by Michael Connarty on 09/11/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Human rights and Middle East.

That this House calls on the Turkish government to release Ragip Zarakolu immediately from detention as well as the many other scholars, academics, researchers, writers, journalists and human rights activists who are imprisoned in Turkey for expressing their thoughts; and believes that these detentions undermine the Turkish state's claims of democratic progress and respect for human rights.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
