Why a Turkey Tribunal?

In recent years, human rights violations have increasingly been reported in Turkey. Various international bodies and courts have confirmed this, sometimes even in very sharp terms.

That is why we have taken the initiative to set up a “Turkey Tribunal.” Even though it is not legally binding, the ruling of the tribunal will have high moral authority.
