THE LAWYER OF THE ALTAN BROTHERS COMMENTED ON SENTENCES

Ahmet and Mehmet Altan’s lawyer Ergin Cinmen commented on an aggravated life sentence for six journalists including Altan brothers and Nazlı Ilıcak. Cinmen spoke to the newspaper Evrensel and reminded that the court decision is based on three columns and a TV programme. Cinmen said: “We were not actually in a court, one cannot call this a trial. There were three people and a prosecutor who are brought there to issue life sentence. Cinmen added that “This ruling proves that the judiciary in Turkey, at least what we experienced, is the office of the government”. Cinmen underlined the fact that aggravated life sentence is issued despite the Constitutional Court’s order stating abuse of rights and said Turkey and Azerbaijan are the only countries where the lower courts do not comply with the Constitutional Courts’ ruling.
