A Report on the Rule of Law and Respect for Human Rights in Turkey since December 2013
In January 2015 the authors were asked by solicitors for the Journalist and Writers’ Foundation to conduct an independent desk-based inquiry into the actions of the Turkish government, its institutions and officials against supporters of the Hizmet movement.
Written by former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, the Rt. Hon. The Lord Woolf CH, the Director of the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, Professor Sir Jeffrey Jowell KCMG QC, former Solicitor-General for England and Wales, the Rt. Hon. Sir Edward Garnier QC MP and human rights and media law barrister Sarah Palin, this report concludes that, since December 2013, the Turkish government has perpetrated systematic human rights violations that would justify legal action at international level, most likely before the European Court of Human Rights.
The Report on the Rule of Law and Respect for Human Rights in Turkey since December 2013 was published on Monday 28 September 2015.
