Ankara, Turkey: 23 arrested in solidarity demo with cons. objector

From Ainfos:

On 6th of January 2010 in Ankara, cops violently attacked activists* from Solidarity Initiative with Conscientious Objector Enver Aydemir arresting 23 people. The activists were demanding release of the conscientious objector Aydemir who had faced torture in military jail.

They used their right to remain silent in the police station. 22 of them were released after spending over 24 hours in jail following their questioning by the public prosecutor. However, one of them (Volkan S.) was detained and will stay in jail waiting for the first trial. (Lawyers will appeal for his release tomorrow.)

* [Most of them anarchists, also some socialists, feminists & anti-militarists.]
