The Committee of Ministers of The Council of Europe, cm@coe.int: Take action to set free the wrongfully detained Judges/Prosec in Turkey
  
  

 


Why this is important


There's a second coup d'état going on in
Turkey
. President Erdoğan uses the foiled military coup to haunt judges
and prosecutors under false accusations: he lets arrest 2745 prosecutors
and judges claiming that they had been part of the military coup (the
list of those judges and prosecutors was "miraculously" published a mere
12 hours after the military coup). In fact their only "crime" is their
commitment for an independent judiciary and the rule of law.
Those
judges and prosecutors need our support very urgent. They are under
threats to life or physical condition. And so is the Rule of Law and the
Independence of the Judiciary in Turkey.
