Joint Letter of Appeal on Behalf of Serkan Golge, Imprisoned US Citizen and NASA Physicist of Turkish Descent

October 24, 2016

On October 24, 2016, Endangered Scholars Worldwide and the Committee of Concerned Scientists, together transmitted a Joint Letter of Appeal to the Turkish Government and US Department of State, regarding the ongoing detention, persecution, and conviction of Serkan Golge, a 36-year-old United States citizen of Turkish descent who works as a physicist with the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration. 

In the letter of appeal, both Endangered Scholars Worldwide and the Committee of Concerned Scientists strongly deplore and condemn the ongoing detention, persecution, and conviction of Serkan Golge, and call upon all international organizations, academic and professional associations, and other groups and individuals devoted to the promotion and defense of human rights to strongly protest this arbitrary incarceration, to call for his immediate and unconditional release, and to urge the officials of the Turkish government to respect, guarantee, and implement the provisions and principles of human rights as specified in international conventions and treaties to which Turkey has long been a signatory. 

 

We ask you to send letters, emails, and faxes respectfully urging authorities in Turkey for Golge’s immediate and unconditional release.
