  • NHC makes a submission on human rights in Turkey to the European Commission

    Turkey:

    NHC makes a submission on human rights in Turkey to the European Commission

    Upon invitation, NHC has made a submission to the European Commission Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations. The subission points out that the situation of civil and political rights in Turkey has deteriorated in 2015-2016. Some of the actions and statements of senior politicians – including President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan – led to an erosion of the rule of law. In particular, the media and the judiciary were under pressure by the executive power, but the subission also points out challenges related to refugees, freedom of religion and belief and LGBTI. NHC is also concerned that the Kurdish peace process has halted.
