Mass Detention

Report on mass detentions | Nurullah Albayrak

After the 2013 Gezi Park protests across Turkey, the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) began to drift
towards authoritarianism, undermine rule of law and wield state power as a weapon in order to intimidate and silence
dissent. Subsequently, a corruption probe implicating high-level officials prompted a government retaliation against the faith-based Gülen movement after government executives alleged that the investigation was a conspiracy orchestrated by the group. Simultaneously with the erosion in judicial independence, the authorities launched mass detentions against the movement, which were intensified following the failed coup of July 15, 2016. This report aims to evaluate the legal and humanitarian dimensions of the mass detentions and arrests based on tangible data.
