IFHHRO Position Statements
IFHHRO strongly supports Physicians for Human Rights' (PHR) new "Health Professionals’ Pledge Against Torture," following political discussion in the US regarding a potential return to waterboarding.
IFHHRO, along with a coalition of other organizations led by Physicians for Human Rights, has sent a letter to the Regional High Court in Gaziantep (Turkey) and the Turkish Ministry of Justice. The letter calls on the Court to uphold its fair trial obligations under international law in their appeal of a lower court's conviction of Dr. Serdar Küni. The conviction, dated April 24th, 2017, was based on arbitrary charges (providing medical treatment to Kurdish fighters) based on an anonymous testimony and signed statements obtained under torture.
