Life imprisonment for Kavala: the root of the injustice – Yetkin Report

President Erdoğan, whose persistent pleas resulted in Kavala being unfairly sentenced to life in Gezi’s trial, says ‘Justice is what keeps society alive’ at breaking dinner of fasting which he gave to members of the high judiciary the same evening.

Osman Kavala was sentenced to life in prison on the fabricated charge of attempting to change the government.

Neither the life sentence nor the entire trial has anything to do with the law. It is the epitome of the use of judicial power in politics. It is an example of injustice that will go down in history.
The fact that this injustice was committed under the power of a party called Justice and Development is salty.

Moreover, Erdogan, who attended the 60th anniversary ceremony of the Constitutional Court hours before the decision was announced, gave an iftar dinner to members of the senior judiciary in Beştepe hours after the decision. Applause to the members of the senior judiciary who attended and applauded. Erdogan told senior judges: “Justice is what keeps society alive.” It’s putting salt on the wound.

He won’t stay all his life, his head will rise, but
In the Gezi trial, in which Erdoğan was considered a “victim”, Murat Bircan, who recognized Erdoğan as the leader and was a candidate of the AK party, was sentenced to life imprisonment by the Judiciary Committee, despite objections from a committee member that there was no evidence. He was convicted for ignoring the decisions of the Constitutional Court and the European Court of Human Rights.
The Gezi case, in which Kavala was sentenced to life in prison, will be remembered tomorrow, as will the lawsuits filed by the AK party, such as Ergenekon, Sledgehammer, OdaTV, Military Espionage, are the work of the police, prosecutors and Fethullahist judges. today. This is the root of injustice. Of course, the pain of such injustice does not stay inside, it will come out one way or another.

If the life of Kavala, whose life was usurped, dies, of course he will not remain in prison for life. The decision is political and it will certainly change if a fair trial is done with the changing political climate. As Kavala walks out of prison with her head held high, those rejoicing in her sentencing today will lower their eyes. His head will rise, but his life is stolen from him.

Why did Erdogan wear it?

The fact that Kavala was sentenced to life imprisonment through a forced legal process was the outcome desired and expected by Erdoğan. In fact, Erdoğan started obsessing over Kavala, whom AK party members tried to use as an intermediary to meet Georg Soros, in 2010, when Fethullah Gülen said “no” in the constitutional referendum, when he attempted to raise the dead from the grave if necessary and have them vote “yes”. However, his removal begins with a message he sent during a one-day meeting in Imrali, just before the Gezi protests in early 2013, when the Erdogan government began a dialogue with PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan on the HDP. Kavala, through HDP supporters, warned that negotiating the presidential system would lead to the transformation of Turkey into an authoritarian regime, which was naturally presented to Prime Minister Erdogan by MIT. In fact, Erdoğam was obsessed with former HDP co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş, who said in March 2015, “We won’t make you president,” for the same reason; You can read the details at this link.

What will the opposition do?
Until around 10:30 p.m. on April 25, when this article was written, only the CHP was out of the six-party coalition. CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, Istanbul Mayor Ekrem İmamoğlu and parliamentary group deputy chairman Özgür Özel condemned the life sentence and said “it will end soon”.
Of course, that doesn’t mean it will end, but there’s no sound from other opposition alliance partners.
During the Gezi protests, DEVA leader Ali Babacan and future leader Ahmet Davutoğlu were already members of Erdoğan’s government, they had joint responsibilities. But do they still believe that Gezi was really a coup attempt? What about Kılıçdaroğlu’s ally, IYI party leader Meral Akşener? The leader of Felicity Temel Karamollaoğlu? Gültekin Uysal, President of the Democratic Party, member of the National Alliance. Do they really believe that Kavala and his friends organized and funded the Gezi protests?
Or do they think this forced decision is right?
Of course, saying I’m a Democrat doesn’t mean a Democrat.
You have to show in these difficult times.

The court also sentenced Mücella Yapıcı, Çiğdem Mater, Ali Hakan Altınay, Mine Özerden, Tayfun Kahraman, Can Atalay and Yiğit Ali Emekçi to 18 years in prison for helping Kavala.
