Platform for an Independent Judiciary warned Turkey’s judiciary body

Must read

The High Council of Judges and Prosecutors of Turkey (HSYK) is currently dealing with the removal and dismissal of 3.500 judges and prosecutors who are suspended and under criminal investigation. A majority of this group is presently detained.

The Platform for an Independent Judiciary sent out a letter to the High Council of Judges and Prosecutors of Turkey urging the Council to apply and to observe the relevant international and European standards on judicial independence when it decides on the question of dismissal on the judges.

After all any sanctions taken without first properly investigating and evidencing allegations of wrong doing of each concerned judge are not in line with these standards.
