torture of Necati Zontul- an update and forthcoming documentary

24-11-2006 12:15

a travesty of justice - the turkey turns
published below, a letter to the Greek Prime Minister from Tim Wilson who works in Oxford with his partner, torture victim Necati Zontul. Their second film, "A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE" is now in production and charts the failure and bias of the Greek Courts. Yesterday, the Government's apology to Greek activist Avgoustino Dimitrou, important though it is, demonstrates that there is one law for Greeks and another for foreigners. Necati has waited 6 years fro an apology and has received none. Neither has he been offered compensation, or a statement of non-recurrence. Instead, he has been denied access to court and seen 3 of his assailants acquitted. It is time that the racist agenda is challenged, and the mindless corruption and cronyism that sees convicted men still in uniform years after their trial, must stop -before more innocent foreigners are hurt in Greece.
