ETUC: Turkish Government must end repression, intimidation and violations of human rights

Brussels, 18/07/2013

“We supported the accession of Turkey to the EU, but are extremely concerned about the increasing intimidation and repression of the opposition and of some trade unions. We condemn the ongoing breaches of fundamental human rights and call on the Turkish Government to respect ILO core labour standards as well as the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights” said Bernadette Ségol.
