THE CRIMINAL COURT DOES NOT COMPLY WITH THE ECHR’S RULING FOR THE SECOND TIME

İstanbul 26th Criminal Court rejected journalist and academic Mehmet Altan’s appeal to a life sentence. On 20 March 2018, the European Court of Human Rights decided that Altan’s ‘freedom and security rights’ as well as ‘freedom of expression’ were violated. Following the decision, Altan’s lawyers appealed the court’s decision and applied to the Ministry of Justice. However, the court rejected the appeal on the ground that the final ruling is issued regarding the case.
