Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February It, 1S74-THILETHSRIDQE HERALD-27 Political torture alleged ANKARA Glance tnrough Turkish newspapers almost any day of the week and there is a big headline with the word Since mid-November, the press has campaigned to get to the truth behind widespread allegations of political torture. In harrowing detail, newspapers have published firsthand accounts by leftist detainees of beatings, rape, falaka (caning the soles of the feet) and electric shock torture. Affidavits by women students have told how they were pumped full cf water and given "electric treatment" until their teeth shook loose. The names of alleged torturers have been army officers and senior police they have been invited to challenge the validity of the claims. With the exception of one retired general, none has answered the accusations in perhaps significantly no libel writs have been issued against the newspapers in- volved. Most of the allegations are not new, but their publication in Turkey is. They first appeared in a few European newspapers in late 1972 when Turkey was under martial law and military leaders initiated a harsh crackdown on leftwing extremists. Thousands of leftists were on military trial, accused of taking part in the political unrest that preceded the army intervention of March, 1971. The first time the allegations appeared in a Turkish newspaper, the leftwing Yeni Octam (New martial law commanders issued an order forbiding further publication. But last September, with the lifting of martial law, restraints on the Turkish press ended. Two months later, another small leftist daily, Yeni Halkci (New started a daily series of front-page torture accusations, most levelled against MIT, the Turkish national intelligence organization. Yeni Halkci published affidavits were smuggled out by leftwing detainees, some of whom are still on trial. It charged that statements complaining of torture had not been forwarded to the proper authorities for investigation. The campaign spread to the popular Kress, including the top-selling urriyet which has a By contrast, the rightwing Tercuman (Interpreter) has denounced the affair as a Communist conspiracy and leftist propaganda. Turkish authorities have denied the here and in the Council of Europe. "They are all lies, all ex- premier Ferit Melen said early last year. Last November, Nairn Talu, then prime minister, ordered an "administrative investigation" which concluded there was no evidence to support the allegations. The findings met with scorn from critics. The investigation was carried out by officials of the same security organizations implicated in the allegations. The findings also clashed with the conclusion reached by Amnesty International, the London-based organization devoted to safeguarding human rights. After sending two missions here, Amnesty concluded that the allegations provided a "convincingly consistent picture. The places where torture is al- leged to have taken place, the names and descriptions of torturers and the methods used occur again and again." "Techniques of torture alleged to be used are principally .beating of the electric shocks and the insertion of a truncheon into the anus or Amnesty reported. The new prime minister, Social Democrat Bulent Ecevit, is reported sympathetic to the plight of jailed extremists. A small number of parlia- mentarians have asked him to order'a full, independent inquiry. But to do this would risk upsetting military leaders, frequently implicated in the ac- cusations. In parliament recently, Ecevit, who hopes to declare an amnesty for many jailed extremists, urged all sides to for- get the past. It appeared to be an appeal to the leftwingers not to pursue the torture campaign. However, it appears unlikely that the Iskence Dosyasi (torture dossier) will be closed so easily. It will probably remain an issue for months to come. Language program expanded OTTAWA (CP) The fed- eral-provincial summer lan- guage bursary program, providing financial aid to students taking summer course in French or English as a second language, is being expanded by more than 10 per cent this year, State Secretary Hugh Faulkner said Friday. Mr. Faulkner met reporters at the signing of the fourth federal-provincial agreement providing bursaries for post-secondary students tak- ing such courses.

The program, which accom- modated students last year, is being expanded to students this summer. Its budget also is being increased to million from million last year. Mr. Faulkner said the pro- gram, conducted at 33 post- secondary institutions in Canada, is open to "almost any post-secondary student who wants to study the second language." However, only one-third of approximately applicants found places in the program last year. The program is funded by the federal government and administered by the provinces. Distribution of the bursaries is largely on a first-come, first-served basis. But other criteria, such as ability to profit from the course, are applied. An already-bilingual person, for example, would not be ad- mitted, Dr. Richer said. Mr. Faulkner said the pro- gram began in 1970 with students involved. D. C. M.

Professors favor CUPE OTTAWA (CP) I tion Minister Robert Andras says he hopes to introduce changes "within the next few days" to the points system for immigrants which will more fairly reflect the demands of the labor market In an interview Friday, Mr. Andras said the changes will give potential immigrants whose skills or experience are in demand the edge over those who, although possibly more educated or skilled, have little chance of finding work in their field. Potential immigrants who have a job lined up in Canada or who are willing to go to areas where the labor market is less glutted will get extra points for occupational demand "in addition to any other points for any other he said. "We're going to more pre- cisely attune this to regional situations. "It might mean, for instance that a doctor who is willing to go to Sault Lookout would get occupational demand points whereas a doctor who is going to Toronto where there is a surplus, would not... This would apply across the board to other professions and skills."
