This petition had 386 supporters

Professor Clyde Forsberg, a U.S. citizen working at Karabuk University in Turkey was wrongfully arrested along with several of his colleagues on Sunday, August 14th 2016 for aiding and abetting terrorism and treason following the failed coup attempt. This accusation is completely false. Professor Forsberg has been detained in prison by the Turkish police without any contact to the outside world, including his wife and children also currently living in Turkey. Professor Forsberg is a well-known international scholar beloved by his students and colleagues all over the world. This petition seeks to put pressure on the US Embassy in Ankara Turkey, to demand his immediate release and freedom to leave Turkey unharmed.
