European Court of Human Rights ordered Turkey to pay damages for 18.000 Euros over a prisoner who was held alone in a cell due to his sexual orientation.
The prisoner claims that he was put in a small and dirty cell and he was not allowed to join any kind of activity. He says that he only had the right to see his lawyer. After a while, due to his diagnosis for depression, he was sent to a mental institution where he spent a month. Later on, he was put in another cell to stay with another homosexual prisoner where both suffered verbal abuse over their sexual orientations by one of the guardians. And yet, after the complaints of the prisoner, he was put in a new cell which has solitary conditions.
