Against the background of a joint statement on the trial of Turkish businessman Osman Kavala


The Turkish TRT television announced on Monday that the Turkish Foreign Ministry summoned the ambassadors of 10 countries against the background of a joint statement on the trial of Turkish businessman Osman Kavala.

According to the Al Arabiya website, Turkish television stated that among the countries whose ambassadors were summoned were the United States, Germany and France.

It is noteworthy that Kavala is imprisoned on the background of accusations of involvement in the failed coup attempt in Turkey.

And last week, the Turkish judiciary again refused to release Kavala, a businessman known for his charitable activities, who is very popular among civil society.

A Turkish court previously ordered the continued detention of Kavala, imprisoned since October 2017, as part of a new trial of fifty-two people, accused by Ankara of being behind the failed coup attempt against the rule of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which took place in mid-July 2016. for the Gezi ecological protests of 2013; At the time, the participants refused to convert the park into a military barracks.

Commenting on the court’s decision, Koksal Bayraktar, a lawyer defending the prominent businessman, said that “it is not possible to bring more than one case together and hold my clients accountable for it, as the Turkish judiciary did.” He added, in statements he made to local media after the end of the court session: “There is no connection between Kavala’s accusation of being behind the coup attempt and the Gezi Park demonstrations.”

Turkish courts had previously acquitted Kavala of all charges against him, including “espionage” for foreign parties, as well as his support for the Gezi protests, but the appeals court later appealed those rulings, accusing him of being behind the failed coup attempt against Erdogan’s rule.

Bayraktar and a number of Kavala’s lawyers objected to the prosecution of their client in two separate cases, which the Turkish judiciary merged together. As a result, he left the courtroom with a number of his colleagues in protest against the continuation of the trial, whose next session has been postponed to November 26.

The Turkish lawyer told Al-Arabiya.net: “My client did not commit a crime that requires imprisonment or trial.” Stressing that “Kavala’s trial is being conducted for political motives”, which was repeated by the same accused in his defense statement, in which he again denied all charges against him.
