Turkey: Justice Delayed and Denied: The persistence of protracted and unfair trials for those charged under anti-terrorism legislation
The focus of this report is criminal proceedings against people charged under anti-terrorism legislation. Amnesty International is concerned about a pattern of unfair trial procedures, in particular in relation to people whose trials began in the State Security Courts, but for whom the legislative changes and continuation of their cases in the special Heavy Penal Courts have not resulted in justice. Thus this report focuses on people charged between early 1993 and the end of 2004 whose cases are still ongoing. The report includes five cases which illustrate the concerns raised and makes mention in footnotes of other cases.
