CAMPAIGN UPDATE: Support Nureddin Sirin, Prisoner of Faith, Turkey

IHRC urges all campaigners to send letters of support and Eid greetings to Turkish prisoner of faith, Nureddin Sirin.

Sirin has been imprisoned since 1997 for helping to organise a Quds (Jerusalem) Day rally. Whilst he was in prison he was subsequently tried and given further sentences for writing articles in which he speaks of supporting Kurds on an Islamic basis.

He failed to qualify for an amnesty last month after the Turkish intelligence services produced a report claiming him to be part of a terrorist organisation which was set up after Sirin started his jail term.

This is a critical time for Sirin and the many prisoners of faith like him around the world. Please take a few minutes of your time to send him a message of support.

You can write to him at:
