The second hearing of the ‘Gezi Case’, which was reconsidered after being overturned by the Court of Cassation and the Court of Appeal and in which Osman Kavala was the only detainee, will be held today November 26,2021
The second hearing of the ‘Gezi Park‘ and ‘Çarşı‘ cases, which were merged after the Supreme Court of Appeals and the Court of Appeal were overturned, will be held today (26 November) at the Istanbul 13th High Criminal Court.
TWO SEPARATE CASES THAT HAVE BEEN DECISIONED WERE OVERFORGETED AND COMBINED
The ‘Gezi Park’ case and the ‘Çarşı‘ case were decided by different courts in which they were heard. The Court of Appeal overturned the ‘Gezi’ case, and the Supreme Court overturned the ‘Bazaar’ case. The Court of Cassation, in its annulment, noted that there was a legal connection between the two cases and stated that the cases should be combined. Thus, the ‘Gezi’ case was combined with the ‘Çarşı’ case at the Istanbul 13th High Criminal Court.
Kavala: Extrajudicial Execution
Making his defense at the first hearing, Kavala said, “Continuing my detention on Sudanese excuses is an extrajudicial execution, an effort to create a perception. It is an attempt to circumvent the ECtHR’s decision. I hope that the consolidation of cases will lead to a better understanding of the threats facing the Turkish judiciary.”
Announcing its interim decision, the court decided to continue Kavala’s detention, taking into account the nature and nature of the crime and the stage of the trial. One member of the judge stated that he was of the opinion and opinion that Kavala should be released with one or more measured judicial control measures.
AMBASSADORS OF 10 COUNTRIES CALL
Embassies of Germany, USA, Denmark, Finland, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Canada, Norway and New Zealand made a statement on social media and said, “We call on Turkey to ensure the immediate release of Osman Kavala”.
ERDOĞAN GIVEN INSTRUCTIONS TO BE MADE UNWANTED
Reacting harshly to the embassies’ statement, President and AKP Chairman Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said that he had instructed Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu to declare the ambassadors of 10 countries “persona non grata”.
AP TURKEY REPORTER: MISSED OPPORTUNITY
The European Parliament (EP) Rapporteur on Turkey, Nacho Sanchez Amor, who followed the case, also used the expressions, “Unfortunately, there has been another missed opportunity for the Turkish authorities to respect their international commitments,” in his social media account on the Gezi Park case.
Osman Kavala is on trial for ‘violating the Constitution’ and ‘providing the state’s confidential information for the purpose of political or military espionage’ and ‘attempting to overthrow the government’ regarding FETO’s July 15 coup attempt.
