Kaos GL's fair trial and trial monitoring workshop gathered lawyers in Izmir.

Trial Monitoring workshop was held Kaos GL - News Portal for LGBTI+

The fair trial and trial monitoring workshop organized by Kaos GL took place in Izmir between October 12-13th.


In the workshop, which was held with the participation of lawyers from Antalya, Istanbul, Ankara, Sakarya, and İzmir, discussions focused on the concept of fair trial and the emergence of the concept took place. In the context of the Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights, the studies focused on comparative violations of the right to a fair trial in civil and criminal cases. After the first presentation of the workshop by Att. Kerem Dikmen, law coordinator of Kaos GL, explaining the objectives and basic concepts of the workshop, Dr. Reyda Ergun, an academic member of Kadir Has University Faculty of Law gave a presentation on sub-concepts of fair trial.


On the second day of the workshop, Duygu Türemez, who has carried out Amnesty Turkey's litigation observations in the past, shared concrete narratives in light of Amnesty International's trial monitoring practices.


In the study, which made a general assessment that one of the major deficiencies in case observation practices was the lack of observation processes for legal cases, the question of how to make the policy of impunity towards LGBTI+ victims more visible through litigation monitoring processes in a legal system that the right to a fair trial is not recognized to the victims in criminal cases was also discussed.


The workshop ended after the second day.
