800 of the 900 judges appointed by the Ministry of Justice with relations to AKP

(author known to editor)

Independence and impartiality, indispensable quality, honor and virtue of judiciary. A judiciary who does not use his conscious, sells his personality, breaks it down and betrays himself and his nation, country and state before anyone and anything else.
In a political environment where distortions and irregularities have been overtaken and the contradictions and immoderations in different sections have been experienced and the pledges have been forgotten and negated, partisanism is gradually increasing, and objectionable procedure and actions follow each other. Lastly, 800 of the 900 judges appointed by the Ministry of Justice, who has relations to AKP is horrifying. In a country where the judiciary has lost its independence and its impartiality, justice becomes a dream, one cannot talk about security, social peace, welfare and rest. Judiciary bias is the most severe disorder.
It is a surprising contradiction while referendum results still discussing, as the complaints about the impartiality of the president not being compatible with the membership of a political party become widespread, it is an astounding repugnance that the reputation and trustworthiness of the judiciary was rendered constantly debatable and complainable by appointed judges comes from a ruling party background. Those who cause this objection that remains in duty, to be seen appropriate and protected, is also thought-provoking.

First: please find the name lists of 107 dismissed judges on 5/5/2017:

Second: “Speaking to the media, Deputy Chair Mehmet Yilmaz, said when new names will emerge after confessions from suspects, the judicial board will evaluate them; however, work on the existing list has come to an end.

“We are not working on any other list,” he added.

http://aa.com.tr/en/turkey/turkey-over-100-feto-linked-judges-prosecutors-sacked/812259

Third: “… the proposed constitution will give (gave) Mr. Erdogan total control over the judiciary. In fact, the new constitution would allow the president to appoint four members to the Supreme Council of Judges and Prosecutors, Turkey’s highest legal body responsible for oversight of a judicial system. That’s actually the same number the president appoints now. Although the number of members of the council has been reduced…”

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/14/opinion/turkeys-good-governance-referendum.html

Fourth: “According to the regulation made in the Article 159 of the constitution, the members of the Council of Judges and Prosecutors shall be elected within thirty (30) days at the latest and shall take office on the work day following forty (40) days after the entry into force of this Act.”

https://politicsandlawinturkey.wordpress.com/publications/contributions-of-fellows/2017-amendment-proposal-to-the-turkish-constitution/

Conclusion:

-Since July 15, 2016, a total of 4,238 judges and prosecutors have been dismissed.

-Some of the dismissed/detained judges amongst 107 are the ones who gave decisions to arrest other judges after the coup attempt and now their turn to be arrested.

-Current High Council’s members will be replaced by the new ones soon. Therefore, Deputy Chair Mehmet Yilmaz’s statement is not binding.

-New High Council members may start to work on other lists as well and it seems so.

-Simply, that is a never ending process.

A letter from the daughter of Mustafa Erdoğan, arrested member of Supreme Court of Appeal and a cancer patient as well

“My father is fighting for his life in a cell. Doctors say he will probably live 2 more years at his best.”

Mustafa Erdoğan, a member of the Supreme Court of Cassation, is not released despite his life struggle in prison. The story of the cruel persecution towards a family from Mustafa Erdoğan’s daughter Buket Erdoğan’s;

Here is Buket Erdoğan’s letter;

First of all hi,

I am Buket Buket Erdoğan. I am a second year student at Ankara University Faculty of Law. I am studying law in the same school that my father, Mustafa Erdoğan a former Court of Cassation member, studied and graduated once, for being a legal expert like my father. I want to tell you what we have been living since 15th July.

Like everyone else on 15th July, we learned the coup attempt from television. When we were following the news that night, we would not dream of being thrown away from our home, and my father struggling for his life a few months later in a hospital room. On July 16th, we were alone with my brother at the time of our house being searched by the cops and not being able to find anything naturally. I always comforted him that we have nothing to hide. My father never hesitated to expres

s the injustices. In the statement taken in the hospital after, he also emphasized the HCJP’s impartiality. The next day there was a court warrant about my father, but despite the fact that the emergcy state was not announced yet, they did not hesitate to take the members of the Court of Cassation violently and handcuffed them. My father did not surrender for his own sake, because of his health condition. Because we heard the conditions on which the arrested members of the Court of Cassation were held. After events, they wanted us to evacuate our house immediately because it was a public house. My mother and brothers moved to Antalya. I continued to stay at the Ankara because of my school. Our life went downhill in an unexpected moment. I was seperated from my family.

It was rather insignificant beside the troubles my mother experienced when she and my brothers moved to Antalya. My mother had moved from the house which we were staying, with a “your husband is a terrorist” label and got kicked out to somewhere else if i may say so. My brothers had to leave their schools of which they were fondly attending, and all our assets were frozen. Our address were always explicit. While our relatives houses were searched for, neither my mother’s house in Antalya nor my house in Ankara which i stayed with my friends were searched for.

My father was trying to guarantee our life, to support us and to pay attention to his health. There has been a great deal of uncertainty in our lives with the decision of seizure of our assets. We could not use our bank accounts and we could not use our investments that my father had accumulated for years. In this process, I tried to stand on my feet in Ankara and to give support and to give morale to them. Neither I norm y father have nothing to do with FETO. My father did not surrender because it was irregularities [in due process], not because he was guilty. My father did not hesitate to express the truth everywhere and at anytime. My father always gave importance to his work. Though he had headaches, he did not use permission from the work. And I learned from my dad, that the law did not exist for someone’s comfort. We (i and my brothers) even have grown up without using the court’s pencils so that not to be unjust. It was quite injurious to see what was unfair and how the law was disregarded, and taken under control. My father’s headaches increased considerably when my mother set their life in order, in Antalya. It was said that my father’s had a tumour in his brain and was in stage 3 and that he had to be operated as soon as possible. My father never talked about his condition, so that we should not worry about his health. And in this process the tumor spread vastly with stress. We were worried that if the surrender was done before the operation, treatment would fail in prison conditions. My father had his brain surgery in a private hospital. The longest waiting in my life. I never felt that fear of losing my father so close. When my father hospitalized, police arrived. My father was in intensive care. I was just thinking about his health, but in front of the intensive care gates, the cops were discussing how to arrest him. His left side paralyzed after surgery. I could age 5 years in 5 days when my father was in intensive care. If they would take him (arrest him) in this situation, we feared about him not recover, but we have no choice but to wait for what will happen to him. On 30 December 2016 my father was transferred to the detention room in the hematology department on the 8th floor of the faculty of medicine of the mediterranean university in the presence of the cops. But the arrest decision was not even reported to the dad. My father found himself in a small room that did not even have a window after surgery. The cops kept watching over and emphasized that a man with paralysis could escape. Even when we received information from the doctors, police did not leave us. In fact this arrest was made not just for my father but for my whole family.

My father was accompanied by my mother at that moment and there was not even a bed to sleep. My father did not even see the sky after the day he entered the ward. Even his children were not allowed to visit. Although I was his daughter, I could not allow permission to stay in the companion. In my father’s room, there are twice as much bars. I always thought that how could doctors overcome these barriers and intervene in an emergency situation. A cancer patient needs a morale in the process of healing, but this kind of treatment will make even a healty person sick. The disease did not upturn because my father’s treatment hindered. As a matter of fact nowadays he has loss of consciousness and hallucinations.

Even if  my dad transferred in that room on December 30th, his statement was not taken until the month of February. After the statement taken on 1 February, it was decided to be pending trial on 2 February because there was a life threatening condition. We breathed a sigh of relief but after a full day without giving the breath we had, the prosecutor objected the decision. My father did see out of the window for the first time after surgery. He was only taken to normal service for 1 day. However, when the objection was accepted, he went back to the prisoner’s ward again. I learned that the prosecutor who made the objection and the judge who accepted it were also married.

It was a very ironic situation, we did not expect that the lawlessness would be so advanced. Since my father was paralyzed, and he laid down constantly, the doctor asked for a air bearing pad in order to prevent his body. This was also expressed in the report, but it was not allowed because it categorised as the technological device category. They wanted a new medical report. This detail is quite insignificant besides the unjust treatment we experienced, but the attitude we saw was this. I did not see my father after the arrest. They have not given permission. A person who even was not convicted had not allowed to see his children. I learned yesterday that the objections of our lawyers to the constitutional court were rejected. There is still a precautionary decision on our property right now. My father is fighting for his life in a cell. Doctors say he will probably live for another 2 years at his best. Despite he is not guilty how is it legally proper to pass his last times in this situation ? How will they give us the time we lost when it turns out that he is innocent ? I just wanted to tell you. Even if they do not understand. Because it is hard to comprehend unless you experience, and it is very difficult to accept.

Everything goes according to the Plan!

(author known to editor)

WHAT WAS PLANNED BEFORE THE COUP ATTEMPT 

and WHAT HAPPENED THEN?

 

(Italics are made by the author) the rest is from the column, and it is written before the coup attempt

 

“On June 13, (2016) the government submitted to parliament a bill envisaging a massive purge at two of the country’s highest courts, which many say will put the last nail in the coffin of judicial independence and separation of powers.”

 

Sami Selcuk, a former head of the Court of Cassation (Yargitay) made a comment about the draft

 

Regarding the substance of the draft, Selcuk decried it as the “last nail in the coffin” of judicial independence. “The planned system is compatible neither with the Anglo-Saxon nor the continental European system. It’s peculiar and nonsensical. It’s harmful,” he wrote in the same article for Cumhuriyet. “Such changes could be found only in times of military coup. In a normal legal order, no one can even dare to think of [such changes].”

 

Pointing to persistent government efforts to control the judiciary, Selcuk added, “We’ve never experienced interferences on such a scale in the past five decades. As a former judge, these are days of mourning and shame for me. [The draft] has prepared the coffin for the judiciary, which is already ailing and suffering from a crisis of confidence. I hope the legislature doesn’t put the last nail in the coffin.”

 

The only difference is that the last nail in the coffin was put by the executive not the legislative.

Independent Judiciary ?

(author known to editor)

CHP Istanbul deputy Barış Yarkadaş continued his statements related to the appointments of judges on April 24th.

⊙ “800 of newly appointed 900 judges are composed of AKPs provincial and district administrators.

⊙ The judiciary became a branch of the AKP with the appointments of judges on April 24th.

⊙ The experiences are reminiscent of the Hitler era. With the recent appointments, it is clear that the “Towards the Führer” principle will be implemented.

⊙ The scandal grows as it is scrutinized the “VIP” judges list of AKP.

⊙ It became necessary to make public the scores of all judges appointed on April 24 and the reasons for appointment.

⊙ The daughter of the President of the Council of State and the principal clerk of the Minister of Justice appointed as “Vip judges”

⊙ Gonca Hatinoğlu, the daughter of President of Council of State Zerrin Güngör, was appointed as ‘VİP JUDGE – PARTY MEMBER JUDGE’.

⊙ “Gonca Hatinoglu has practiced his lawyer internship in Palace under the auspices of President Erdoğan, and her husband, Volkan Hatinoglu, was also appointed to the company Renaissance, who built the Palace before.

⊙ Muhammed Said Pamukçu, the principal clerk of Justice Minister Bekir Bozdağ, is amo
ng the “winners of interview”.

⊙ AKP Trabzon Provincial Vice-President Bayram Günaydın is appointed as “party member judge”.

⊙ Ersan Oktaş who was a candidate for nomination in Samsun, Bafra mayorship was appointed as a judge on 24th April. Oktaş was a member of AKP Bafra Municipal Assembly in the previous term.

⊙ AKPs Bafra City Alderman Mustafa Sekmen was appointed as Judge on the same day.

⊙ AKPs Buca Municipality Alderman Sebahattin Kocagöbek was among the appointed ones too.

⊙ AKPs Konya MP candidate Muhammet Selman Harmankaya is also within the lucky names.

⊙ The AKP administration repudiates the law, the rule, the custom to establish an order in which they can not be judged.

⊙ These and yesterday’s findings are just a part of the scandal. I keep reviewing the list.

⊙ Justice does not come from this judiciary. Turkey will become to hell with this mind. Everyone should raise their objections aloud.

⊙ Period of “party judge” is the death of justice and law. It is time to gather in front of the courts make the funeral prayer of justice.

A COLUMN BY OYA BAYDAR, T24 INTERNET DAILY, REGARDING ERDOGANS’ STATEMENT “IF YOU MERCIFY GULENIST YOU WOULD BE PITIABLE”/ TURKEY

(sent to Editor by known source)

DO NOT BECOME PITIABLE MR ERDOGAN!

When I heard that you say “do not pity those who snivels, if you do so, we will become the pitiable ones”, on TV when i was watching your membership stage play to AKP again, i really pitied you. Maybe you are not aware of it maybe you are; You are already suffering because you are losing your world while you are losing your afterworld, the President of the AKP and the President of the half of the Republic.

Your “lovers”, “admirers” in your circle, your lickspittles and jesters will not tell you these. I will still do my humanity.

We the people that conscientious, insightful; If we know that we would have become pitiful, we have mercy for victims, opresseds, crusheds, especially those who are come to us for their needs. Moreover, you are faithful; Which book, which religion says “do not have mercy”, which belief orders “be unjust, be merciless”; Is it yours?

Let me tell you from the beginning: I can not wish evil, harm for anyone even to you; I do not wish you any, but if one day you become pathetic, pitiable, I will have compassion for you even if you will hurt me when you have the opportunity to do so.

If all these victimisations is not a burden to your conscience…

Today, i will almost call out to you to hear the voices of hundreds of thousands of victims thereby reminding Dr. Ömer Faruk Gergerlioğlu’s “obstacle to the disabled pension” article. I’m glad I did not. For a moment, maybe you have not been informed, maybe you have been unaware of i thought, what a simpleton thought i had. Listening to your speech, i realize the wave of victimization which reached a nonapparent to whom its going to hit, imperceptible, no mercy for anyone is with your order. So judges, prosecutors, courts, policemen, gendarmes are so reckless that they have received the ruthless commands from you. They do not hesitate to commit violation of human rights, to inflict hundreds of thousands of innocent peoples lives in imprisonment with unjust decisions, to throw them out of their jobs, to seize the assets and frozen their money, salaries, and to ruin the lives of their children.

It is not political; I am talking about a legal, conscientious, moral issue. FETO, ISIS, PKK, journalist, author; There are tens of thousands of people held in the solitary confinements, in prisons for nine or ten months, without proving their crime with solid evidences before the court, without even preparing the indictment, or being trialed by a court. Moreover, as it were they have been sentenced to heavy convictions, they do not even have the rights to have visits, writing letters or communicate. Especially, those who labeled FETO (which can be happen by informs of rotten people of demonized society of yours, by assumptions, by mistake even sometimes) their wives, children, and families of victims outside the prison was also not exempted from the victimization. I know the children that were not recorded to schools because of their surnames, the families evicted from their homes because of their landlords were scared, the spouses whose salaries, dotations were cut, I do not even remind those who commit suicide.

People are writing, screaming to those who writes, draws, speaks still have voice in order to able to be heard, told their victimisation. Because they have nowhere to go. Their complaints, grievances, clamours, fills our letter boxes, e-mails, social media, everywhere they can reach. A so-called research commission will be established in order to prevent the accusation of thousands of innocent people next to a few of guilty and to eliminate grievances. You promised the nation as well as the EU that it would be established up to January (2017). Where is it, where? Do you even care these injustices, unfairnesses, victimisations! Are you not aware that when you say, “Do not have mercy, if you would we will become pitiful,” all the sins of injustices and grievances will be loaded on you in this world and the afterworld, where you say you believe in as well.

How far is it to distort reality?

Zaten hiç ayrılmadığınız partinize şeklen geri dönüş törenindeki konuşmanızı alkışlayan cemaatinizi seyrederken, inanıyorlar mı sözlerinize diye düşündüm? Hele de “Bunlar (ki Avrupa Birliği oluyor “bunlar”) OHAL ilan ettik diye saldırıyorlar, Fransa da OHAL ilan etti” dediğinizde…

When i was wathing your congregation clapping your speech at your return (to your party) of which you never apart of i thought did they even believe you ? Especially when you said, “They (means EU by saying They)  are attacking us because we declared emergcy state, France is also declared it”

France has declared an Emergency State after the terrorist attacks, right. But they are criticizing you for not declaring ES, they criticizing you because you called the inauspicious coup d’etat as Allah’s grace hence denying liberties, democracy, human rights. Ask your counselors if you do not know; In France, how many people were arrested in the Emergency State; How many journalists, opposing people have been taken to prison for months without being brought to the courts, how many trustees have been appointed to the institutions, how many media foundations (tvs, newspapers, magazines) have been closed, how many houses have been raided, etc. … I will tell you this: when i asked the question to the French, they thought a while and there was only one member of the press, He is a criminal who is arrested for smuggling. Also, a mosque where the ISIS members are nestled is closed on their own demands.

Put all democratic values ​​under your feet, disregard all the principles of the EU, the red lines, and even threaten them, then cry out to us as enemies and intimidate them as “its your funeral”! Your congregation and us are have no choice but to believe, but they do not “eat” these words.

I do not count to keep it short; There were such distortions in your speech (i can not define as lies because of the respect to the position and i scared) that a honorable Interior Minister, a Prime Minister, a counselor with a character would have immediately alerted you.

The “crowned head” is not getting wise it seems

You are wearing a crown on your crown, or rather you wear your own crown yourself. You are the one man here, and you are strong, you achieved your goal. You are no longer a victim, but you are fastuous. It was expected that you would be the head of the public not half of us, but all of us. It was expected that you are going to say “we are going to turn a new page”. It was anticipated that you adopt the pains in the society witthout discriminating, “we” – “they”. Chance would be fine thing

When I listened to your conversation, I recalled a saying about the crowned heads. That was said for the ancient sultans in ancient times! It’s no longer fits today.

Pro-gov’t journalist Etyen Mahcupyan about the wich-hunt in Turkey made on unfounded denunciation

(sent to editor by known source)

The story that i am going to tell you goes through in one of the cities of Central Anatolia however it might happen anywhere in Turkey since there is no obstacle from happening it and we continue to hear more and more rumors about similarities in many different places. One day, a lawyer from one of the big businesses received a call from one of his prosecutor friend. The prosecutor wants him to come his office as soon as possible. On the visit of the lawyer, after regular chit chat the prosecutor has brought the subject to an investigation about the lawyer tells him that he is accused of being a fetoist and in charge of petty officers in that city …

The lawyer tries to explain to the prosecutor that they met long ago, known each other as a family for years, and the accusations about him is just a bunch of baloney as best as he could tell, but the prosecutor was also on the same page. However, the Prosecutor says that he has to arrest him, because otherwise he has a high possibility of getting into trouble. The lawyer insists on who reports him, but he can not have answer. The prosecutor stressed that he did not have the authority to give this knowledge to him …

As a matter of fact, the public prosecutor arrests the lawyer who is a close friend and sends him to jail. After a few days, the lawyer, due to his friendship get a chance to talk again with the prosecutor. He begs to the prosecutor know who had reported him. Finally, the prosecutor’s heart softens and tells the name of the informer. The lawyer hears this name for the first time. Nothing will come out from the research of the family too. No one knows this person in the family …

While the imprisonment has been around for a few weeks, an idea comes to the lawyer’s mind and he makes an attempt. After a long struggle the lawyer persuades his prosecutor friend to this: the prosecutor was going to call the informer and ask him the person that he informed and put five pictures in front of him including the lawyer. The prosecutor invited the informer and put the photos in front of him … And the informant did not know who the lawyer is. He does not know the lawyer and never saw it in his life.

Thus, the lawyer was released from jail … The informer does not say why he denounced him, and who encouraged him. After the incident neither the lawyer nor the prosecutor pursued the informant. They fear that something would happen if they went after the informer. The lawyer still does not know why this all happened. If the idea of identification from the photographs did not come to his mind because of his profession and if the prosecutor had not been a friend he would meet the festival in prison today, It would be a long time to think about “national sovereignty”

29,23% of Judiciary carrying out a coup d’état. Really???

According to CEPEJ (see: https://public.tableau.com/views/Countryfiches2010-2012-2014/Countryfiche?:embed=y&:display_count=yes&:toolbar=no&:showVizHome=no) in 2014 Turkey had 8’835 Judges and 5’306 Prosecutors.

By now 4’133 are dismissed and / or detained. That’s 29,23% !! *

Is there really anybody believing that 29.23% of the members of the judiciary were supporting a putsch against democracy ?

Or might it not be more plausible that there was somebody wanting to get rid of an independent power in the state, which could hold him to account ?

Up to you to use your brain, autonomously if possible .

 

One more example indicating that the judiciary is null in presence of Erdogan

(author known to editor)

Erdoğan says extradition of Die Welt journalist Deniz Yücel impossible as long as he is in power. What follows is the details about the incident:

SAYINGS OF ERDOGAN ATTRACTED A WIDELY CRITICISM IN GERMANY

The German politics reacted to the statement of Erdoğan concerning the extradition of German journalist Deniz Yücel would not take place as long as he was in power.
Christian Lindner the chairman of Liberal Free Democratic Party said in a statement he made to Bild Daily that Erdoğan has completely removed little doubts left with respect to that Turkey a country with no interest in rule of law and not conforming with being a candidate of European Union memberhip.

A CRITICISM FROM THE MINISTRY OF INTERIOR:

Christian Democratic Union (CDU) member and Undersecretary of the Interior Ministry Günter Krings accused Erdoğan of disclosing the truths about the trial of Deniz Yücel being acted in accordance with the principles of a so-called state of rule of law.

THE FINAL DECISION IN CASES ANY MORE NOT BELONG TO THE JUDGES

Krings added: With his sayings, Erdoğan confessed that those who make the final decision in cases have not been any more the judges”
Furthermore, the Justice Minister of Bayvera province and Christian Social Union member Winfried Bausback told: “The fundamentals of the state of law is a basic principle that join the European countries. The violation of this basic principle in such an o
bvious manner is an unbelievable situation. At last, the President Erdoğan makes himself disqualified in presence of public”.

THE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN TURKEY PRISONS HAVE REACHED POINT OF NO RETURN

Muzaffer Bayram, the former general secretary of the High Council of Judges and Prosecutors (HCJP) and prosecutor of the province of Malatya has been arrested since 23 November 2016 and held under solitary confinement despite both of his arms are broken.

Muzaffer Bayram, even unable to meet his personal needs, and his family have made applications to the prison administration several times to be removed of his trouble, however, have not been replied yet and nothing resulted from the petitions of his family.

Barış Yarkadaş, Deputy of Main Opposition Party CHP, made a statement concerning his current situation.
Yarkadaş touched on the following points in his statement:

“The minister of Justice Bekir Bozdağ can not be interested in the happenings in prisons because he has been so busy with referendum workings which will cause the dissolving of the Assembly. But, the human rights violations and devastation have reached unendurable standing. Look! Two complaints have reached me today. One is from Kırıkkale Keskin prison. Both arms of the arrested prosecutor Muzaffer Bayram are broken. He has also a report pertaining to his health problem. However, he has been held under solitary confinement cell. This practice can’t be possibly accepted. The wife of Bayram submitted me a petition informing about his current situation. The only one request of them is putting one more cell-friend beside him. If this is done, Muzaffer Bayram whose both arms are broken is able to meet his needs. Unfortunately, nothing resulted from the petitions of the family. They are said that Mr. Bayram has been left alone due to his life security.”

Despite the declaration of Yarkadaş, it is learnt that no change has been made in the situation of the prosecutor yet. The prosecutor who is unable to use his arms has been still held alone in aprison cell.

LATEST EXAMPLE CASTING THAT THE TURKISH JUDICIARY HAS LOST ITS INDEPENDENCE

I would like to draw your attention to the recent retaliation in Turkey regarding the judicial independence.

The judges of Istanbul 25th Heavy Penal Court (Aggravated Felony Court) and the trial prosecutor were suspended on 3 April 2017 due to their ruling for release of 21 defendant journalists after the hearing on 31 March 2017.
The suspension of the three judges and prosecutor, like the thousands of previous ones, showed that the Turkish courts are not independent of outside pressures especially coming from the goverment side.

After the five-day hearing, the trial prosecutor requested eight defendants to be released and the delegation of the Istanbul 25th Heavy Penal Court ruled for release of 21 out of 29 defendant journalists who had been under pre-trial detention for eight months over the charges of their alleged links to the so-called Gülenist Terorist Organization (FETO/PDY). However, not only 21 journalists were re-arrested the same night, but also the three judges and the prosecutor were temporarily suspended from job on 3 April 2017 as a result of social media lynch campaign towards them.

The incidents that paved the way to the suspension of the judges is explained below:

Following the court’s ruling for release of 21 defendant journalists on 31 March 2017, one of Erdoğan’s hitmen Cem Küçük threatened the judges through his Twitter account, @cemkucuk55. Some of his twits are as follows:
“10- If those traitors are not jailed again, some will pay a heavy price for it. I am saying this knowingly. Things will get crazy (7:39 pm – 31 March 2017) (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/847850960038883328).
13- Justice Minister Bekir Bozdağ should immediately assembly the High Council of Judges and Prosecutors, and take legal actions against these judges. This is the Nation’s demand (7:50 pm – 31 Mar 2017) (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/847853695790350336).
14- Judges and prosecutors who release known FETO suspects will be permanently discharged. This is the State’s final decision. Everybody shall learn that (8:08 pm – 31 March 2017) (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/847858216050597892).
15- The courts and state belong to the nation. No suspect can be released against the nation’s will. Nobody should work on the state’s and the People’s patience (08:09 pm – 31 March 2017) (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/847858465657806848).”
A few hours later, he shared new twits as follows: “The Justice Minister and the HCJP (High Council of Judges and Prosecutors) will take action. Those traitors will not be released, God willing! (31/03/2017, 10:40 pm) (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/847896480128139264).
The traitor FETO supporters will not see any sunshine. They will decay in the jail. Be relieved! The patriot judges and prosecutors are doing what is to do (31/03/2017, 10:47 pm)” (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/847898273469919234).

Another pro-government journalist Ersoy Dede responded Cem Küçük’s twits via his account and wrote that “[t]his is not enough @cemkkucuk55… All judges who joined the release ruling will be arrested without exception ( @ersoydede 31/03/2017, 10:46 pm) (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/847897878941106177).”

Another journalist linked to the government Fatih Tezcan shared a message on his Twitter account, @fatihtezcan and wrote [a] ll judges of the court that released the bitch who had made a live-TV show with a hanging rope and told that Tayyip Erdoğan would be bummed off shall be jailed over FETÖ links (31/03/2017, 6:57 pm) (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/847840398492016640).”

Ömer Turan, another hitman of Erdoğan, put following message on Twitter: “HCJP should immediately hold a session tonight and expell all judges who released FETO suspects. Then, those judges should be jailed (@omerturantv 31 March 2017- 7:38 pm) (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/847850679301537793). ”

The same night, the Undersecretary of the Justice Ministry, Kenan İpek, also a member of the 1st Chamber of the HCJP shared following message via his personal account: ” The fight that the Turkish judiciary and the HCJP have been carried out against the FETO/PDY armed terrorist organization will be maintained in the same decisive and absolute manner as it was done before (1/04/2017, 01:17 am) (https://mobile.twitter.com/kenanipek53/status/847935807323242501).”

As a result of the social media clamor noted above, 21 released journalists were not freed and 13 of them were taken under custody over new charges the same night . They were charged with attempting to replace the constitutional order and overthrow the Republic of Turkey. The Public Prosecutor’s Office of Istanbul objected to the release of the remaining eight defendants and they were not freed but kept in jail until Istanbul 26th Heavy Penal Court reversed the defendants’ release. Therefore, all defendant journalists who had been previously released were either jailed again or taken under custody the same night.

On 3 April 2017, the three judges who ruled for release of 21 journalists and the trial prosecutor were all temporarily suspended by the HCJP. The only reason for their suspension was the above-mentioned release order that was not implemented. Suspending judges and launching legal proceedings against them because of their judicial rulings demonstrate a clear evidence that the independence of courts in Turkey has been abolished. Judges or prosecutors who witness such reactions, or who read the twits shared by the undersecretary of the Justice Ministry cannot be expected to perform their judicial work independently and without fear. Professor Yaman Akdeniz, lawyer and a humanright expert, on his twitter account, shared that [i]t is no longer possible that any journalist or any ordinary man shall be fairly and impartially tried over so – called FETÖ/PDY cases(@cyberrights, 3/04/2017, 9:19 pm) (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/848963056545800197).”

Although numerous examples have been witnessed in recent years(see the Declaration of Venice Comission dated 20 June 2015), this case is particularly significant since it is also related to the freedom of media.

According to Toygun Atilla’s report from Hürriyet Daily dated 5 April 2017, Deputy president of the HCJP, Mehmet Yılmaz, explained the reasons for suspending the three judges and a prosecutor. In his interview, Mr. Yılmaz said they had suspended the judges and launched an investigation because of the claims that the release of the 21 defendants had not conformed to the law and content of the file. He also admitted that they had taken such an action because of the outcry among the public, and because of some accusations showing that the judges had wilfully released the 21 defendants under other motivations except law.
When he was asked if those suspensions influence the other judges and prosecutors handling with FETO cases, “[o]f course, there will be some negative impacts but…”, he responded. Mr. Yılmaz also put this interview on his Twitter account (@mehmetyilmaz073, 5/04/2017, 06:13 pm) (https://mobile.twitter.com/undefined/status/849459904083570688).

As above-mentioned events cast, judicial rulings (the release order in this case) are arbitrarily reviewed by a non-judicial organ (HSYK/HCJP) and found unlawful and illegitimate. As a result of non-judicial reviews and reactions, judges and prosecutors may be suspended, dismmised, or subjected to legal proceedings. However, judicial decisions are only subject to judicial reviews and reversed by other judicial organs pre-determined by law. In sum, it is clear that the independence of judiciary is not independent as long as judicial decisions are subject to de facto governmental review and/or if judges are dismissed or suspended due to their judicial capacity.
Suspension of judges because of so-called outcry among public that their ruling may have created is a clear example proving that judges are vulnerable and open to external influences. Instead, protection of judges against external pressures is considered as one of the basic elements of an independent judiciary (Findlay v. The United Kingdom, para. 73). As a conclusion, this case is one of the significant evidences casting that the first instance and appeal courts performing under the shadow of the HCJP have lost their independence.

A LETTER FROM THE WIFE OF IBRAHIM ETHEM KURİŞ, ARRESTED FORMER ANKARA CHIEF PROSECUTOR IN TURKEY

The wife of the arrested prosecutor is now among hundreds of thousands of people who find themselves facing tremendous difficulties after the government started a desperate crackdown on the Gülen movement in the aftermath a 15 july coup attempt.

What follows is the full text of the letter submitted by the woman.

“… My husband, Ibrahim Ethem Kuriş, is a well-known prosecutor in Turkey. He has always been very good at his job and therefore advanced quickly in his career. In his initial years, the Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors [HSYK] appointed him as chief prosecutor in Tunceli and then Sinop. Thanks to his “Awarded Prison Project” in Sinop, he attracted the media’s attention. Even though he was younger than many of his colleagues, he was appointed to İstanbul’s Sarıyer district as chief prosecutor. The first elected HSYK appointed him as chief prosecutor in the capital, Ankara, in 2011. He oversaw many important cases in Ankara, including the pro-gov’t Deniz Feneri Association corruption and the Feb 28th post-modern military coup, which involved many politicians, bureaucrats and military officers. He was later appointed as Antalya chief prosecutor. That was his first lower-level assignment. Following the Dec. 17 and 25, 2014 [corruption probes], investigations that revealed the biggest corruption and bribery scandal in the history of the republic, the HSYK was redesigned by the ruling party and my husband was targeted again. He was sent to Sakarya as a prosecutor.
Because of unprecedented pressure on him, he developed cancer. He had surgery and is still undergoing chemotherapy. He has lost a lot of weight and has become weak because of disease. Doctors prescribed very precise treatment that requires a special diet. He must follow this advice carefully; otherwise, he could lose his eyesight. Unfortunately, he has already lost 95 percent vision in his right eye.
He needs special treatment for his eyes as well. During his treatment, he was detained over alleged involvement in the failed military coup attempt of July 15. He was the prosecutor who oversaw the Feb 28 post-modern military coup case. And now he is being accused of a similar crime.
He was too weak to even go outside, and he is now accused of trying to overthrow the government. As I said, he had previously been targeted by the AKP government, and Doğu Perincek supporters because of the Deniz Feneri and Feb 28th cases. His detention is revenge by members of the pro-government judiciary.
During the first two days of detention, he was not allowed to see his attorney or family members. He was staying on the fifth basement level of the courthouse. He was forced to sleep on the floor, and this made his health worse. In addition, he waited for three days for his preliminary trial. Then he was arrested and sent to İstanbul Silivri Prison. All his assets have been confiscated, which is also a kind of punishment not only for him, but also for me and our children. He was dismissed from his position. Therefore, we lost our only income.

He was held in a room with other 21 prisoners for 45 days. Then, he was put in solitary confinement. He was left to die in jail. He has cancer and needs special treatment. It is unlikely that he can have that under his current poor prison conditions. Please hear my voice. Anyone who has a conscience! Please help me and my husband. Please help us before it’s too late! We lost our income, and all the assets we had. I cannot afford my family’s living expenses, which makes my husband sad as well, and adversely affects his immune system. He is alone in his cell now. He tries to survive under terrible conditions. We are far from him behind those walls; however, as a family, our soul is captive inside the walls with him. My husband has been left to die, and he is slowly dying.

JUSTICE! : about the suspension decision of the jurists releasing 21 journalist by HCJP

 

Emın Çöllaşan

My dear readers, the concept of ‘the independence of the judiciary’ is the foundation stone for every democratic society.
In a country where the judges and prosecutors make a decision in cases they hear in a way giving preferential treatment or they are compelled to do so, it becomes impossible to talk about the independence of the judiciary or the justice as well.
The judges and prosecutors who are subjected to the strong pressure of the executives and also compelled to decide so as not to undermine the interests of the ruling government reach at last a deadlock.
There was a report yesterday concerning the judiciary on which nobody paid much attention. That’s to say it was not found strange!

*  *  *

The 25th İstanbul Assize Court decided to release 21 out of 29 journalists including the artist Atilla Taş at the end of a trial of FETO suspects.
Then, this decision was informed to the prison administration…
The suspects who became so happy upon the release decision started to release preparations.
However, only a little time before they released, a new surprise decision reached the prison administration.
The other court had decided to the continuation of their arrest!
All right, how could it that become possible?

*  *  *

The interesting and remarkable truth of the matter became appearant on the next day.
The Supreme Board of the Judiciary (HCJP) suspended the head and the other two members of the court (the panel of judges) ordering the release of the journalists and also the prosecutor requesting the release of them.
They would be investigated by the inspector judges.
Now as you see the justice’s become injured in this way.
The concept of the justice’s become got rid of in this way.
In Turkey, lots of similar events have been being experienced everyday, however, almost none leaks out the press or becomes known by the public.

*  *  *

Now, let’s assume that you become a judge or prosecutor. In a case you hear, make a decision that undermines the interests of the executives if you think you can do it!
Particularly in politic cases…
Examining the case file, you find that it is deprived of the specific facts or absolute evidences of legaly designated crimes.
There is no grounds to continue the security measure of arrest or impose a punishment.
Furthermore, there is no risk of the suspects to escape, destruct or alterate the evidences as well.

*  *  *

You are a man delivering justice.
If that’s so, then what will you do?
I have no idea about the mentioned file and its content.
The aforementioned suspects have been held under arrest for a long time. As much as I could follow from the media, I know this much.
An Assize Court consisting of experienced panel of judge decided to release the suspects.
I have also no idea whether the decision was right or wrong, conforming with the laws or not.
However, it is certain that there is a huge strangeness in the current situation.
The happenings touch with the concept of the justice and also the independence of the judiciary.
Furthermore, at the same night with a newly court decision, it was decided for the continuation of the arrest of the journalists.

*  *  *

The mechanism worked on with lightning speed..
After an other court decided to re-arrest the suspects, the HCJP took action and suspended the jurists releasing the journalists.
Now, I am asking to all:
Let’s assume you become a judge or prosecutor…
Under such a political pressure, could you possibly render a decision in accordance with the Constitution, laws and your personal conviction conforming with the law knowingly that it will undermine the interests of the executives?
In the event of making a such decision, thinking even if you are not suspended, at least you will be exiled, you are rigthfully afraid.
From now on, which hero judges and prosecutors can possibly make decisions running counter to the realities of Turkey particularly in high-profile cases?

*  *  *

In fact, the truth of the matter is that with the recent suspension decision, the HCJP has become given a message to the whole judiciary:
“Think over carefully the outcomes of your decisions like this!”
Well, from now on, which court is able to decide the release of particularly the journalists of the Cumhuriyet Daily and the others!
How can it be possible?
As of today, the columnists, executives and the carucaturist, Musa Kart, of Cumhuriyet Daily have been arrested for 157 days.
The release requests of them have been rejected each time.
What kind of an offense have our colleauges committed?
Theft, corruption, rape, having a link with FETO, the support to terror, attempting a coup!
None of them.
If that’s so, then?
It is easy to answer…
The ruling government does not want them to be released.
Can such a justice or independent judiciary be possible?

*  *  *

Since 15 July coup attempt, almost 4200 judges and prosecutors were dismissed from the profession over charges of having a link with FETO.
Hundreds of them have been jailed in several prisons, awaiting fo their trial in desperate straits.
All right, who has charged them with this duty?
Again this government!
At that time, they were ally with Fetullah, they were just like twins and also very close friends.

*  *  *

There has left a little time for the Constitutional amendment referendum…
I oftenly warn those thinking to vote YES.
In case that the referendum results with the majority of YES votes, the ruling government will completely take the judiciary in particular the Constitution Court under its control.
You may need a justice one day.
Think over carefully…

SCANDAL: THE COURT DECIDED TO RELEASE 21 JOURNALIST, ERDOĞAN’S HITMEN MADE THEM RE-ARRESTED

(author known to blog editor)

The moment the court decided to release 21 out of 29 journalists at the end of the 5-day trial of 29 journalists, the AKP trolls among whom are Cem Küçük, Ersoy Dede, Fatih Tezcan etc. launched a campaign in social media, angrily calling on the judges re-arrest them. Hours after release decision of the journalists, İstanbul Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office issued detention warrants about 21 journalists.

Being unable to endure the release of the journalists to be tried without arrest, Cem Küçük, the leader of Erdoğan’s hitmen, ordered HCJP do what’s necessary and the jurists who made the release decision of the journalists re-arrest them.

In a series of messages from his twitter account on 31 March night, he wrote:

1-Except Atilla Taş and Murat Aksoy, all the suspects will flee by the sea way in this midnight. I am calling on Turkish police officials to take an action.
2-19 known FETO supporters were released. I am calling on the HCJP to do what is necessary with the judges who decided to release those journalist! That’s enough!
3-Ekrem Dumanlı (the ex-editor of Zaman Daily, shut down by the government) was also banned from traveling abroad but he fled. These will also flee if they are not arrested again.
4-The lovers of this country…Do not to allow this treachery. This nation is great.
5-All of these traitors will flee abroad and they will treat Turkey as an enemy. We should not let them do this.
6-İrfan Fidan, esteemed prosecutor, unless these known FETO supporters are arrested again, they will flee like Dumanlı.
7-What a pity! What a shame! We lost our 250 citizens struggling to survive Turkish state. The organization will help them escape by the sea way, the houses are ready for all in abroad. It’s not possible!
8- The ban from travelling abroad is meaningless. Dumanlı fled despite this ban, this organization is able to do this, all will flee abroad.
9-Even Ahmet Hakan reacted to the release of 21 journalists. Turkish judiciary! Have you stayed even behind Ahmet Hakan. That’s enough! Enough for such an extremely fear!
10-If these traitors are not jailed again, some will pay a very heavy price. I say this knowingly. Things will go crazy.
11- The scoundrel called Fetullah mentioned a spring. Is that spring this one? The prosecutor requesting the release of the journalists and the jurists of the 25th Assize Court releasing them! Answer my question!
12- Across the country in excess of 300 known FETO supporters were released. Judges, is the spring of Fetullah this? You will give an account to this nation.
13- (The Minister of Justice) Bekir Bozdağ should immediately convene the HCJP and take action against some judges. This is the demand of the nation.
14-Every judges and prosecutors who release the known FETO supporters will be dismissed from the post of judge. This is the definite decision of the State. Everybody knows this.
15-The owner of these courts and state is the nation. Despite the nation, nobody can be released. Nobody compels the patience of the nation and state come to an end.

“ Our Minister of Justice and HCJP have taken an action. The traitors will not be released.”
“The traitor FETO supporters will not see happy days. They will decay in the jail. Don’t worry! The patriot judges and prosecutors are doing what is necessary.”

In such a country where not the courts but Erdoğan’s hitmen decide who will be released and the judges and prosecutors can not render a decision independently and also those who desire to make a decision in line with the law are threatened to be dismissed from the profession, I wonder what sort of examples does the ECtHR, which addresses the applicants to the going haywire judiciary rejecting the applications for non-exhaustion of domestic remedies, want to see in order to be convinced that the victims of the emergency decree laws have a zero chance of success in the presence of domestic courts??

HDP official referendum campaign song, “Bejin Na‘’ (Say No), banned

Last week the Şırnak Governor’s Office announced that the HDP official referendum campaign song, “Bejin Na‘’ (Say No), has been banned in Şırnak for “inciting hatred and hostility among the people.”

The HDP’s campaign song was composed by Kurdish singer Şeyda Perinçek and widely used by Kurdish politicians while campaigning to persuade people to vote “no” in a critical referendum on April 16 that will introduce an executive presidency in the country if approved.
