11 doctors convicted in Turkish Medical Association trial 

The trial into 11 members of the Turkish Medical Association’s (TTB) 2016-2018 Central Committee on charges of “inciting the public to hatred and animosity” and “disseminating propaganda for a terrorist organization” on account of an anti-war declaration they issued in January 2018, concluded on 3 May 2019.

The 32nd High Criminal Court of Ankara convicted all 11 defendants in the case of “inciting the public to hatred and animosity” and gave each defendant two 10-month prison sentences. The court convicted one defendant of “disseminating propaganda for a terrorist group” for her social media posts and gave her a prison term of 1 year, 6 months and 22 days. The court did not defer the sentences.

The case stemmed from the TTB Central Committee’s declaration issued on 24 January 2018 and titled “War is a public health problem,” in response to Turkey’s military operation on the Syrian city of Afrin.

Pro-Kurdish HDP appeals election council’s decision denying office to newly-elected mayors

Turkey’s pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) has appealed a decision by the country’s top election board to withhold the certification of the party’s newly-elected provincial and district mayors who were dismissed from their prior jobs following decree laws implemented after the July 2016 coup attempt, independent news site Diken reported on Saturday.

HDP officials in the appeal accused the Supreme Election Council (YSK) of failing to uphold its constitutional duty of ensuring that elections are held in a safe and equal fashion, Diken said.

The YSK earlier this week announced that district mayors elected in this year’s March 31 local elections who had previously been stripped of office by presidential decree will not be allowed to take up office, citing their expulsion from their previous jobs by an emergency decree. The council said that it would be awarding the mayoral seat to the second placed candidates instead.

Stressing that the YSK’s decision is unconstitutional, the HDP said the council had “placed itself in place of the will of the electorate by assigning unelected mayors, thereby increasing its unconstitutional stance.’’

While those dismissed by government decree have a mark added to their official records, making it nearly impossible to be employed in the public sector, the YSK allowed candidates dismissed by decree to run in and take office after the June 15, 2018 parliamentary elections.

Following the 2015 collapse of a peace process between the ruling Justice and Development (AKP) government and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), Ankara has intensified a crackdown on the HDP, which it accuses of harbouring sympathies and acting in the interests of the PKK, an armed group that has been in war in Turkey for over three decades.
