Deeply saddened we are by the loss of our colleague lawyer EBRU TIMTIK.
She passed away on 27 August 2020 after a hunger strike of 238 days, which she started to strengthen her demand for fair trials and the administration of justice in Turkey. Her demands for justice were supported by many.

We would like to pay our condolences to her family, friends and colleagues with whom she worked on human rights issues and pay tribute to her determined work to protect the rights of others and promote respect for the rule of law.

Our fight to secure the release of her colleague Aytaç Ünsal continues.
