That's good news, as your initial report was very troubling. TBH I don't have much faith in Turkey's fairness when it comes to investigating political activity.

OK I have to agree with the comments on that story. First, the guy is not a cannibal - that was just a reference to how he killed one of the inmates. Second, so far as the story says, the only people he killed were scumballs who probably deserved to die. No innocents, no kids, no women. So why is his sentence and imprisonment so unrealistically draconian? You'd think he had murdered a thousand people and was an actual cannibal! I agree it's cruel and unusual to have no company at all, not even a pet, and furniture made of cardboard? What are they afraid of: that he'll kill the rest of the prison's inmates? I'd let him do it. ****ing unbelievable. Not at all what I expected when I read the story. What makes him so "dangerous" that they can visit such unprecedented punishment on him?
