Amnesty International has launched an “urgent action” campaign for Mustafa Çabuk, a Turkish secondary school teacher at imminent risk of extradition to Turkey, asking people to call on Georgian officials to avoid extradition.

“Çabuk is at risk of extradition to Turkey where he is at risk of torture and other grave human rights violations. Turkey has accused Mustafa Çabuk of “supporting terrorism”, referring to his alleged links with the Gülen movement,” amnesty said in a written statement.

The organization also listed the necessary steps to take action:

1-Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

Urging the Georgian authorities to comply with their obligations under international human rights law not to deport, extradite or otherwise return Mustafa Çabuk to a country where he would be at risk of torture, other ill-treatment or other serious human rights violations.
