This appeals case highlights concern at the large number of trials opened against Eren Keskin, apparently only for peacefully expressing her views as a human rights defender and for carrying out her role of monitoring and reporting human rights abuses. Eren Keskin is head of the Istanbul branch of the Human Rights Association (IHD) and one of the founders of the Legal Aid Project for sexually tortured women.
