The Human Rights Association (IHD) Izmir Branch used to meet every week in front of Sümerbank to demand justice and the truth for the disappeared while in state forces custody.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, however, the IHD meet through social media.

IHD executive Caner Canlı read this week's statement. Canlı demanded justice and truth for Edip Aksoy and Orhan Cingöz, who disappeared after being detained in Amed on 7 June 1995.

Canlı said that on 7 June 1995 the two did not come back after they had gone to their shop on Melik Ahmet Street to sell tobacco planted in Amed. "JITEM confessor Abdulkadir Aygan said that Cingöz and Aksoy were killed after being interrogated under torture and were buried by the creek on the side of Mount Cudi on the Cizre-Silopi Highway."
