Report on the Trial of Huseyin Cangir - Trial Observation report
Details for Report on the Trial of Huseyin Cangir - Trial Observation report
NameReport on the Trial of Huseyin Cangir - Trial Observation report

This report concerns the trial of Huseyin Cangir, a human rights lawyer and Chair of the Mardin Branch of the IHD. Cangir was found guilty of "hanging up posters in the Kurdish language without permission from the governor", and appealed this conviction to the higher court in Ankara. A KHRP mission observed the trial.

The report, which provides a detailed analysis of the trial in the context of domestic law and international legal standards, found that the indictment and court proceedings against Cangir constituted flagrant harassment and intimidation, and were carried out contrary to international human rights law. Particular aspects of the trial and the judicial framework within which it took place which are singled out for criticism include a lack of impartiality, the relationship between the Judge and the Prosecutor, the Recruitment process of Judges and Prosecutors and the continuation of legislation used to harass and intimidate human rights defenders.
