Turkey to Release, Retry Wrongfully Imprisoned Ex-Parliamentarians

On February 3, Turkey’s president Ahmet Necdet Sezer ratified the most recent "adjustment law," aimed at bringing the country closer to meeting European Union membership requirements pertaining to human rights. According to the new law, when the European Court of Human Rights has ruled that a person has been the victim of a violation of the European Convention of Human Rights as a consequence of a court judgment, that person shall have the automatic right to retrial.
