Family fears over Turkish group arrested in Malaysia

The families of 3 Turkish nationals arrested in early May in Malaysia over suspected links to ISIL contend they fear a group will be sent to their home country.

Malaysian authorities incarcerated a group underneath a confidence law, though tellurian rights groups contend they might be targeted for their domestic antithesis to Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The men’s families fear they could be tortured or face oppressive jail conditions if sent to Turkey.
