22/04/2021 | 13:07:10 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) I speak today as one of those voices representing the ten-millions who are standing strong for democracy and justice in Turkey. · The ten-millions who prefer strong parliamentary regime to one lacking checks and balances. · The ten-millions who care deeply for a human-rights based World order despite the very worrisome trend of powerful actors blatantly negotiating human rights. · The ten-millions who in the 2019 local elections put these... 21/04/2021 | 18:34:40 So, the pandemic has been a reminder of how important our health is and how health conditions can become the premise of discrimination.

"The World Justice Project Rule of Law Index 2020" shows a similar backslide in rule of law. Globally, more countries declined than improved in the rule of law score for the third consecutive year. Clearly we stand at a historical crossroad. A crossroad where the very... 20/04/2021 | 09:26:08 Mr President, Lockdowns or Covid passes? Public health or private rights? The truth is these questions should not be either/or questions, they should actually be both-and statements. Both lockdowns and Covid passes may infringe certain fundamental rights, both bear the risk of being discriminatory in a sense. Lockdowns will treat everybody as infectious and risky and, unless accompanied by strong welfare state support and direct income transfers, they lead to significant erosion and socio...
