Mass Trials against Lawyers in Turkey

Next oppotunities for trial observations

  • The next hearing of the “KCK Lawyers Trial” (46 accused lawyers) will be 7th and 8th May 2015 again in Istanbul.
  • The next hearing of the “ÇHD or DHKP-C Lawyers Trial” will be 13th and 14th May 2015 in Istanbul

Trial observations are important to collect information about these trials, to check if national, European and international law is respected or violated and to demonstrate towards the Court and the Turkish Government our concern about these mass trials.

ELDH organizes regularly trial observations. Colleagues who are interested to participate at these trials as observers are requested to send an email to ELDH “Trial Observation”with their full address. We will forward to them the necessary information.

A “Webinar” will be held on 28th April 2015, 19h30 CET for those who wish to join the trial observation team. Details see (PDF-file)
