Statement: Free Murat Kanatli Now!

No to Compulsory Military Service Movement was shocked to know that the Turkish Cypriot Conscientious Objector Murat Kanatli was sentenced to 10 Days in prison for objecting to participate in the annual compulsory military exercise in the northern part of Cyprus on the basis of his ideological conscientious objection. Murat Kanatli has been always a friend of our movement, and was present in Cairo during the trial of the founder of our movement, Maikel Nabil Sanad, in October 2011. We call for his immediate release and recognition of his right in conscientious objection to the military service.
