Condolence Book for Tahir Elçi


Human Rights defender Tahir Elçi was killed in Diyarbakir 28 November 2015

Human rights lawyer/defender Tahir Elçi was shot dead in Diyarbakir on 28 November 2015. You may recall that Amnesty International organised a public meeting to pay tribute to him in January, attended by his wife, Turkan  Elçi, and one of his closest friends, Orhan Kemal Cengiz.

Almost 6 months on, the investigation into his murder has not yet concluded. As we continue to call for justice, please consider sending a message of condolence to Turkan Elçi and his children, using this link. Amnesty International -Turkey will hand all the messages to her later this month.
