Turkish president approves 4th judicial package
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
DHA PhotoTurkish President Abdullah Gül approved Turkey’s much debated fourth judicial package, which had passed into law by Parliament on April 11.
The package is intended to eliminate rulings against Turkey in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) for human rights violations, especially regarding the situation of convicts charged with membership in a terrorist organization.
The legal reform package was widely debated in Parliament and sparked controversy when it arrived in Parliament on March 7, as it did not meet the high expectations that had built up over time in its original state.
