Joint Letter of Appeal on Behalf of Serkan Golge, Imprisoned NASA Physicist

Updated: May 1, 2019

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

In the letter Endangered Scholars Worldwide and the Committee of Concerned Scientists 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 protest this arbitrary incarceration; to ask 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 demanding for Golge’s immediate and unconditional release.
