Association of Lawyers for Liberty (EMV), Human Rights Association (IHD) Amed Branch, the Human Rights Foundation of Turkey (TIHV) Amed Representative and Amed Bar Association, filed a complaint to the Diyarbakır Chief Public Prosecutor's Office for "torture, cruelty, violation of privacy, insulting someone's memory, misbehaviour" against the authorities responsible of sending HPG guerrilla Agit Silk's remains to his family by mail.

The four rights organizations underlined that the decision to deliver the remains of the guerrilla by mail goes against many international human rights conventions. 

The associations also demanded the authorities involved to be investigated for not delivering the remains of guerrilla Ipek to his family after the DNA test proved his identity.
