SIGN THE PETITION TO DEFEND THE RIGHT OF THE SICK PRISONER ALI OSMAN KÖSE TO  APPROPRIATE TREATMENT AND LIFE!

Ali Osman Köse is a political prisoner who has been in prison for 37 years in Turkey. 21 years of his captivity have been spent in isolation cells.

Ali Osman Köse is a prisoner who has many health problems due to long-term conditions of captivity, torture and isolation. He has many health problems such as neurological problems, circulatory system-related diseases, hypertension, hearing loss, loss of balance, stomach problems, visual disorders. Ali Osman Köse cannot walk alone today without clinging to the wall due to these health problems he has experienced. He can't meet his requirements such as using the bathroom, sink or doing his laundry unaided, he can't even eat his food without assistance.

A 9 cm diameter cancerous cyst was found in his left kidney; it was said that these cancerous cells pose a vital risk and should be operated on urgently. After a long campaign in Turkey and internationally along with the work and applications done by his lawyers he has been operated and cancerous kidney has been removed. Before the operation his doctors have confirmed that this kind of cancerous cyst could only develop over many years. This is a clear indication that his right to hospital referrals, consultations and treatment has been neglected.  

It is quite clear he has driven to the verge of death by neglect and political decisions. Despite serious health problems he couldn’t get proper medical examination and treatment, while remaining under inhuman conditions over a long period. Further he was denied postponement of his sentence for treatment and recovery as foreseen for sick prisoners in his condition in the Turkish Penal Law.

Barriers to Ali Osman Köse's full recovery must be removed, he should be cared for by his friends and family at an fully equipped hospital. He must be kept in safe and  appropriate conditions and released immediately so that he can regain his health.

Let The Sick Prisoner Ali Osman Köse Be Released, Let The Right To Treatment Be Provided!

Solidarity Is The Weapon Of The Peoples!
