Update on Tuna Altinel
Tuna Altinel's passport was restored to him in January 2021 by an administrative tribunal, and he returned to Lyon. However, on April 26, 2022, the decision of the tribunal was overruled on appeal. He remains in France, but his passport is no longer valid in Turkey, leaving him with no immediate prospect of visiting his native country again.
