As mentioned on 1 August, a detained British national can contact our Embassy with any concerns about prison conditions and impact on their welfare. Consular staff will then raise these concerns directly with the appropriate authorities. We are not aware of any complaints raised by the Turkish authorities in the past five years with regards to the treatment of Turkish nationals in British jails.</p> more like this

A detained British national can contact our Embassy with any concerns about prison conditions and impact on their welfare. Consular staff will then raise these concerns directly with the appropriate authorities.</p><p>The prisons in Turkey have a set procedure to ensure detainees have regular contact with friends and family. Detainees are allowed visits from friends and family following a request in advance through our Embassy. Detainees can apply for immediate family members to be placed on a telephone list so that they can call them regularly. They can also send and receive letters or faxes.</p> more like this
