Nation as a genocidaire in the international arena, to destroy the reputation of Turkish national heroes and to destroy the reputation of Turkish national heroes. It was pointed out that he wanted to condemn the State of the Republic of Turkey with the lie of genocide.


In the petition, “genocide is a legal concept, a definition of crime. MPs, parliaments or historians cannot decide whether or not it is genocide. Not to mention MPs, historians, parliaments, even no court is allowed”. According to the UN Genocide Convention of 1948, but the court of the country where the crime was committed or the competent International Criminal Court can decide that the crime of genocide has been committed. There is to date no authorized court decision establishing that the acts committed in 1915 constitute the crime of Therefore, the allegations of “Armenian Genocide” are completely illegal.

The petition also included the following statements: “As part of Garo Paylan’s statements, the HDP has once again revealed that it is the center of hostility to the unity and integrity of Turkey. The Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) is the center of activities contrary to the independence of the state, the indivisible integrity of the country and the unity of the nation. Many decisions made by the HDP as a legal entity, many activities organized by it, statements by HDP cadres are the main evidence for this allegation, as well as the verdicts handed down against many HDP cadres or the crimes attributed to them in ongoing investigations. As the Peoples’ Democratic Party has become the center of actions against the independence of the state and the indivisible integrity of the country and the nation, the decision to close the Constitutional Court should lead to its closure. »


In the last part of the petition, it was requested that the prosecutor’s office prepare a report and send it to the Grand National Assembly of Turkey for the lifting of Garo Paylan’s immunity, and that Paylan be tried in accordance with Articles 3 , 14, 81 of the Constitution of the Republic of Turkey and Articles 216, 301 of the Turkish Penal Code.

In Attorney Kartal’s petition, it was requested that Garo Paylan’s immunity be lifted immediately on behalf of the Turkish nation and that legal action be taken against him in order to prove the so-called allegation of ” genocide”. In Kartal’s petition, it was stated that “it is a historical duty to reveal what kind of imperial event the Turkish nation is facing by confronting historical facts, suppressing expert historian scholars who know this subject very well with a court decision.
