This report addresses the persistent problem of impunity in Turkey in respect of serious human rights violations committed by state officials. More particularly, it aims to provide answers to two overarching questions:
I. Is there an internal system of preventing and monitoring torture or mistreatment, and if yes, how does it function in reality?
II. Is there an efficient system of sanctioning possible torture or mistreatment, or can we speak of an organised impunity towards torture or mistreatment against people held in detention?
