The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe’s latest decisions on jailed politician Selahattin Demirtaş and jailed human rights defender and businessperson Osman Kavala, show that Turkish judiciary is not independent, Yavuz Aydın, a judge and a former judicial councillor with Turkey's European Union delegation, said. The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, which is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) rulings, has pronounced its decisions concerning Demirtaş and Kavala on Friday, who have not been released despite ECtHR judgements. The Committee of Ministers has extended time given to the Turkish government about the imprisoned former leader of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) Selahattin Demirtaş until September 30. It has also decided to wait for Osman Kavala’s release before imposing sanctions on Turkey. Aydın discussed CoE’s decisions with Yavuz Baydar, Ahval's editor-in-chief, in the Hot Pursuit podcast.
