An article on Sledgehammer in the Turkish Policy Quarterly

26 Mayıs 2011

GENEL, IN ENGLISH

Dani’s article in the Turkish Policy Quarterly can be reached here.  This is the abstract:

Turkey’s legal system was reformed significantly during the last decade, with the avowed objective of aligning it with European norms and facilitating the country’s accession to the European Union. On paper, Turkey now has a legal regime that is little different from Europe’s in terms of procedural safeguards and the rights of defendants. But the reality on the ground could not be more different. The author argues that the Ergenekon and Sledgehammer trials have been marred by severe violations of due process and the use of highly problematic evidence against defendants. Pro-government media have manipulated the debate in the country and prosecutors have acted in ways that are sharply at variance with European legal norms. These cases will, he argues, discredit the Turkish judiciary and set back the democratization of Turkish politics.

    Would you please add the sham KCK trial to that list? Violations of due process in the KCK trial are no less severe than in the other two that you mention. You only seem to care about these things when the accused is a relative of yours or someone from your social status.

      Who stops you to reveal the oddities of the KCK trial in your own blog?
