ANKARA - Hürriyet Daily News
Minister Ergin says new amendments will soon be in Parliament. AA photoThe fourth judicial reform package, which is mainly focused on eliminating the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) rulings concerning violation of human rights in Turkey, will be discussed at the next Cabinet meeting, Justice Minister Sadullah Ergin said yesterday.
The reform package was drafted in consideration of the ECHR rulings against Turkey concerning violations of human rights, Ergin said, without further elaborating.
He noted, however, that the package would only operate effectively if there was an acceptable reduction in terrorism.
“Whichever violating rulings have been made by the ECHR, they will be in the package,” Ergin said, stressing that there were currently 2,404 such rulings against Turkey.
