On March 8, 2018, the airport security service in Beirut arrested the Turkish citizen Ayten Ozturk and detained her for a week. Despite being she informed the Lebanese side that she was opposed and fighting against imperialism, she was handed over to the Turkish Consulate, who interrogated Ayten then  she had been  Restricted , blindfolded and forcibly transferred by plane from Beirut airport to Istanbul.

The extradition of Lebanon to the Turkish opposition is a blatant violation of Article 3 of the Convention against Torture, signed by Lebanon, which states: "No State Party shall expel, return or extradite a person to another State where there are substantial grounds for believing that he would be in danger of being subjected to torture " .

The abduction process and interrogation are a violation of Lebanese sovereignty

The Government of Lebanon violated its signature and ratification of the Convention against Torture and its silence and coverage contributed to the abduction of Ms. Ayten.

A double crime and a loud scandal that took place on the ground of Rafik Hariri International Airport and in some respects resembled the murder of Jamal Khashakji and the difference that she is still almost alive in Sinjan prison in Ankara.

For Six months after her abduction, she was subjected to physical and psychological torture from electric shocks, chemical injections, stripping of her clothes, threats of rape and suffering from severe swelling all over her body. She is still on hunger strike and is being forcibly fed by the authorities of the Ankara prison As is the case with Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons.

 "They tried to break my strike, gave me a little liquid, tied my arms and legs and gave me the serum forcibly with the scented food," says Eyten in a letter to her friends.
Forced feeding is one of the worst methods of torture and has serious health complications.

The Lebanese government bears the primary responsibility for handing her over to the Turkish authorities.

It knows that she will be subjected to torture and there is no justification for the extradition process, which requires investigation of the crime of extraditing and kidnapping, which violates the principles of the judiciary and the impunity of the perpetrators of the crime of extradition.
We appeal to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Committee against Torture to hold the Turkish government accountable for the tragic situation of Ayten who hunger strike and suffering serious health conditions.

The world must know that in the Turkish prisons there are thousands of Khashakji detainees who were swallowed up by the Turkish isolation prisons silently and under the eyes of the international community.

The Khiam Rehabilitation Center for Victims of Torture strongly condemns the kidnapping and handing over of the opposition, Ayten Ozturk, to Turkey, calling on the Turkish government to immediately release Ayten and thousands of Turkish opposition detainees in its prisons.
