Report on the Trial of Ferhat Kaya - Trial Observation Report
Details for Report on the Trial of Ferhat Kaya - Trial Observation Report
NameReport on the Trial of Ferhat Kaya - Trial Observation Report

This report is of interest to anyone concerned about the human rights, social and environmental impacts of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline in Turkey. The report, published jointly by KHRP, the Corner House, Friends of the Earth (England, Wales and Northern Ireland) and Environmental Defense, presents the findings of an international mission which, in September 2004, observed the trial of Ferhat Kaya. Kaya is a Turkish human rights defender who was detained and allegedly tortured in May 2004 as a result of his work with villagers affected by the pipeline, and that of the eleven police officers accused of ill-treating him. The mission observed deficiencies in the trials amounting to violations of international fair trial standards, and pointed to the continuing gap between the legal reforms recently adopted by Turkey and their implementation in practice. Disquietingly, Kaya was once more detained and allegedly subjected to ill-treatment on 25 December 2004 - subsequent to the mission - and is now the subject of a further investigation.
