Turkey: Failed military coup opens door to Erdoğan purge

first_imgJuly 18 — NATO’s second-largest army exposed its instability when elements hostile to the regime of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan attempted a military coup on July 15. Before the coup collapsed, jet fighters bombed Parliament, tanks rolled through the streets of Istanbul and Ankara, and helicopters attempted but failed to arrest or assassinate the president.The coup leaders’ politics are still murky. Their program was all generalities about democracy. At this time, the best way to analyze this coup is to look at the reactions of Turkey’s government, its opposition parties and Turkey’s NATO partners.The Erdoğan regime is exploiting the failed coup by purging over 12,000 opponents in the military, police and courts. As of July 18, he has arrested 103, or one-third, of the generals and admirals as well as 2,875 ordinary soldiers who followed their orders. Some 8,777 officers from the Turkish Ministry of Interior have been purged, mostly police officers. (CNN, July 18) Some 2,475 magistrates and another 400 prosecutors face charges.The scope of the arrests appears to far exceed actual coup participants. It looks like Erdoğan’s group had its purge list ready before the coup took place. The coup’s faulty execution indicates it may have been rushed in an attempt to preempt Erdoğan’s purges.Before the coup’s collapse, Erdoğan used a Facetime application on his iPhone to call CNN Turk and appeal to the population, calling members of his Justice and Development Party (AKP) to confront the soldiers carrying out the coup. More than 150 civilians died during the coup, including those who faced down tanks.Erdoğan has been attempting to increase presidential power by changing the constitution away from parliamentary rule. All indications are that he will use the coup attempt as a pretext to keep increasing his own powers and repress not only the coup plotters but all his political opposition.Political parties’ reactionAll four parliamentary parties — the AKP, an Islamist party; the center-right secular Kemalist CHP; the ultra-nationalist MHP; and the coalition of leftist and Kurdish groups called the People’s Democratic Party (HDP) — on the morning of July 16 pledged to stand together with the civilian government against the coup.Most Turkish media, including those the Erdoğan regime had censored or threatened with closing, opposed the coup. People opposed to Erdoğan participated in demonstrations defending the government against the coup, according to reports in the corporate media.HDP spokesperson Selahattin Demirtaş made it clear that despite what he called the “civilian coup” led by Erdoğan since the June 7, 2015, election, the HDP would give no legitimacy to the military coup. “It would be superficial to think a coup will further democracy,” he said. (kurdishquestion.com)Although the HDP — the most democratic and pro-worker of the parliamentary parties — clearly opposed the coup, HDP offices in three cities were attacked on July 17, reportedly by pro-Erdoğan demonstrators.In a statement the Workers Party of Kurdistan, which is defending itself and Kurdish regions from military assaults by the Turkish state forces, condemned both the military coup as well as Erdoğan for waging “more of an actual coup” through “control over the judiciary, the implementation of fascist laws and policies through a parliamentary majority, … and the imprisonment of thousands of politicians from the HDP and DBP [another Kurdish party].” (kurdishquestion.com)A statement by the Communist Party of Turkey on July 15 said that the people should support neither the military coup nor Erdoğan’s AKP. While tensions among different groups within the state and the armed forces are real, the CP wrote, “it is a lie that any of the sides in this conflict represent the interests of the people.” (workersparty.ie)Imperialist reaction to failed coupOn July 15 the major European Union countries and the U.S. criticized the coup as undemocratic and gave lukewarm verbal support to the Erdoğan regime, while regretting the instability in this NATO ally.Later, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that elections are the proper way to settle disputes in a democracy. He added that “it does not appear to have been a very brilliantly planned or executed event. But let’s reserve judgment until all the facts are in.” (Washington Post, July 17)By July 18, following the coup’s defeat, the U.S. and EU warned Erdoğan not to crack down too hard on the alleged coup plotters or to use the coup as a pretext to wipe out his opposition.“NATO also has a requirement with respect to democracy, and NATO will indeed measure very carefully what is happening,” said Kerry. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Turkey could not join the EU “if it introduces the death penalty,” something Erdoğan has threatened. (New York Times, July 18)A year ago, when Erdoğan cracked down after the HDP’s election success and the AKP’s setback, neither the U.S. nor the EU criticized or threatened him. The imperialists are acting now to protect neither democracy nor the working-class parties, but their own assets. In Turkey, these are in the military.Erdoğan accused cleric Fethullah Gulen, a former ally-turned-enemy of being behind the coup plot and called for Washington to extradite him. Gulen, who has set up 130 Islamic religious schools in the United States and in the mostly Muslim Central Asian republics, denied involvement and condemned the coup — after it had been crushed.Gulen has lived in the U.S. since 1998. Former CIA operatives recommended him for residency.The Turkish police, intelligence services and massive armed forces, with nearly 700,000 personnel and close ties to both the U.S. and German armed forces, are still the power in Turkey. The U.S. has longer and closer relations with the generals than with political and religious figures like Erdoğan or Gulen. Washington provides more military aid to Turkey than to any other countries except Israel and Egypt.Erdoğan is no friend of the Turkish workers and certainly is an enemy of the Kurds. He has waged a savage war against the Syrian government since 2011. His air force even shot down a Russian warplane near the Syrian-Turkish border earlier this year.Recently Erdoğan apologized to Russia for the shootdown. The criticisms from the U.S. and the EU indicate they fear he may follow a more independent foreign policy.Regarding Gulen, Kerry said Turkey would have to send a formal request for extradition and provide evidence of coup participation, which Washington would then consider. The question of extradition may remain a focus of conflict and pressure between Washington and the Erdoğan regime.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Retired general sues murdered newspaper editor’s lawyer for defamation

first_img April 2, 2021 Find out more Read the article Who was Hrant Dink ? Reporters Without Borders today condemned the defamation suit which a controversial retired general, Veli Küçük, has brought against Erdal Dogan, one of the lawyers who represent the family of murdered Turkish-Armenian editor Hrant Dink.“This lawsuit against one of Dink’s lawyers in the run-up to the start of the trial of Dink’s alleged killers on 2 July in Istanbul is worrying,” the press freedom organisation said. “Six months after Dink’s murder, those who defend him are still being harassed.”Küçük is demanding 10,000 Turkish lira (5,500 euros) in damages from Dogan. The case, which Dogan called “tragicomic,” is to come to trial on 18 September. The prosecutors investigating the Dink murder never felt the need to question the former general although the Dink family said he could be involved, Dogan said.When Dink was murdered in January, Dogan told journalists his client had felt very intimidated by Küçük’s presence at one of the hearings in his trial in 2006 on charges of “humiliating Turkish identity.”A key figure in the 1996 “Susurluk” affair, which exposed close links between the security forces, organised crime and fascist death squads, Küçük has repeatedly been summoned to testify in court cases that have not always been resolved.Editor and columnist of the Turkish-Armenian weekly Agos, Dink was gunned down outside the his newspaper’s office in Istanbul on 19 January.

Fed Continues Cut Back Despite Possible Slowdown

The unemployment rate ticked up to 6.7 percent in February despite a more promising showing in payrolls than in January and December.With the unemployment rate hovering just above the 6.5 percent threshold originally set by the Fed as one of its markers for holding down interest rates, the committee also updated its forward guidance to shift its goal to one more subjective: “maximum employment.”In a press conference following the release of the latest committee statement, Fed Chair Janet Yellen remarked that while the 6.5 percent mark “had a very useful impact in helping markets understand our expectations and shaping their own,” its use shrank as the economy approached that milestone so quickly.“The committee has never felt that the unemployment rate is a sufficient statistic to the labor market. In assessing the real state of slack in the labor market … it’s appropriate to look at many more things,” Yellen explained. “The closer we get as we narrow in on coming closer to the target we want to achieve, we will be carefully considering many indicators.”Among those indicators, she says: the share of the labor force working part-time involuntarily, the number of discouraged and marginally attached workers, the long-term unemployment rate, and overall labor force participation. While some of those negative factors are seeing “exceptionally high” numbers, “the dial on virtually all of those things is moving in a direction of improvement,” she said.The markets may take a little more convincing than that. In the minutes following the release of the FOMC statement, both the Dow Jones and NASDAQ saw declines—brought down even further by hints that the entire program could be finished as soon as October.

On the contrary, proposed Decriminalization will erode public and investors confidence since the entire settled business and trade cycle which works of post dated cheque will be totally hampered”, reads their letter to the Ministry of Finance. The Council objects to this attempt of classifying the offence under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act and terming the same as “Minor Offence”, “Merely as Procedural Lapse” and “Minor Non Compliance” as a totally unreasonable and unrealistic approach thereby giving a total go bye to the consistent judicial pronouncements and contrary to the legislative history, intention, statement and objects of the past amendment brought in from time to time to make the same as more and more stringent and deterrent. “The proposed move virtually tends to negate the very basic scope and object of Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act which was brought into action to inculcate the faith and confidence of trading community in the commercial transaction. The proposal is inconsistent with the letter and spirit of the very provisions of the Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act and the amendments therein from time to time. Such a drastic and draconian step by the Government, if implemented, will on the contrary certainly create obstacles, severe impediments in ease of doing business and results will be cascading”, it is averred. It is urged that the sentence imposed will be hardly executable if the offence is decriminalised since there are insurmountable hurdles for recovery of the fine imposed by the sentence in absence of fear of imprisonment thereby rendering the judgement to remain on papers only. It would be merely paper order making it mockery of the otherwise entire well established existing system. Execution of the judgment / order after taking its very essence of criminality will be extremely time consuming, tedious, complicated and a rather impossible task in absence of fear of any deterrent punishment as contemplated under the Act. The Execution of the judgment / order will also necessarily involve separate proceedings which will lead to multiplicity of litigation, increase burden on the existing system, costly and time consuming affair. It is contended that existing mechanisms and inbuilt safeguards in The Negotiable Instruments Act are ignored while making the proposal. That the law itself protects the interest of honest and bonafide Drawers /Defaulters at different stages which are as under :i] Section 138(c) in the Negotiable Instruments Act which contemplates issuance of statutory notice before taking any action where the drawer/defaulter is called upon and has the opportunity to arrange the payment of the amount covered by the cheque. It is only when the drawer despite such a notice and despite the opportunity to make the payment within the time stipulated under the statute does not pay the amount that the dishonour would be considered a dishonour constituting an offence under Section 138 of Negotiable Instruments Act will come into play, hence punishable. ii] Furthermore to protect the interest of honest and bonafide drawers Hon’ble Supreme Court has in 3 Judge Bench Judgement in the matter of C. C. Alavi Haji vs. Palapetty Muhammed, reported in (2007) 6 SCC 555 held as under: “17. ………… Any drawer who claims that he did not receive the notice sent by post, can, within 15 days of receipt of summons from the court in respect of the complaint under Section 138 of the Act, make payment of the cheque amount and submit to the Court that he had made payment within 15 days of receipt of summons (by receiving a copy of complaint with the summons) and, therefore, the complaint is liable to be rejected.” iii] Section 147 of the Negotiable Instruments Act already makes offence Compoundable at any stage even without permission of the court ; iv] Accordingly it is pertinent to note that after 2002 amendment, Section 147 of the Act confers implied power on the Magistrate to discharge the accused if the complainant is compensated to the satisfaction of the Court, where the accused tenders the cheque amount with interest and reasonable cost of litigation as assessed by the Court ( This is also reiterated by Hon’ble Supreme Court in Meters & Instruments Private Limited V/s. Kanchan Mehta reported in 2018 (1) SCC 560 ); v] Further the question “as to how proceedings for an offence under Section 138 of the Act can be regulated where the accused is willing to deposit the cheque amount…” was considered by The Hon’ble Supreme Court in Meters & Instruments Private Limited V/s. Kanchan Mehta reported in 2018 (1) SCC 560 ; wherein inter alia it was held as under : “19. In view of the above, we hold that where the cheque amount with interest and cost as assessed by the Court is paid by a specified date, the Court is entitled to close the proceedings in exercise of its powers under Section 143 of the Act read with Section 258 Cr.P.C.” vi] Thus it is pertinent to note that before launch of criminal prosecution as well even later on at different stages sufficient opportunities are afforded and interest of honest and bonafide drawers are totally safeguarded by the Act itself. vii] Thus the Drawer of cheque always have been given a choice to make payment upon demand thereby avoiding being prosecuted. viii] In view thereof the concern raised in the statement of reason for decriminalization about the alleged “risk of imprisonment for actions or omissions that aren’t necessarily fraudulent or the outcome of malafide intent is a big hurdle in attracting investments. ” is already taken care of. ix] That the conduct of the unscrupulous drawers who are determined to withhold / retain the amount of dishonoured cheque clearly disentitles them from claiming any leniency in the matter of imposition of deterrent sentence. “In order to carry out the legislative object of the aforesaid provisions of Section 138, it is absolutely just proper and reasonable not only to scrap/drop the proposal of Decriminalization but rather make it more stringent and deterrent so that such matters could be resolved expeditiously as per Section 143 of the Negotiable Instruments Act”, it is pressed. Lastly, it is advanced that the majority of the lawyers are practicing in this field of the law. That proposed move to Decriminalization will certainly affect their livelihood, careers and their survival will be put to great stake. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

He would go out of his way to do for others. He would bring biscuits to the station in the mornings so we could have an early breakfast. He was thoughtful and kind in so many ways and, what he did, he did out of the goodness of his heart. Otis had a kind, loving and caring heart.” By Jaine Treadwell “That is your legacy on this Earth when you leave this Earth: how many hearts you touched.”Surely, Pattie Davis was thinking of Otis Stone when she wrote those words.There is no way to know how many hearts Otis Stone touched and many hearts were deeply saddened to learn of Stone’s death on Monday. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Black said Stone was known as the Exchange Club’s “onion man.”“Otis knew how good those sweet Vidalia onions were and wanted everybody to get to enjoy them,” Black said with a chuckle. “He would bring onions to the station for people to pick up. The Vidalia onion sale was club’s main fundraiser and Otis saw the good that came from it and worked hard to make the onion sale a success, year after year.”Dennis Griffith, Troy Exchange Club president, said Stone was an inspirational and valiant member.“He taught us many lessons that we have passed on,” Griffith said. “We adopted a lot of his ideas. He was instrumental in the efforts to build the Miracle Field playground. He served our club as president and was also on the district board. He made may contributions to our club and our community.”Stone worked hard to get the Exchange Club’s Freedom Shrines into the schools. The shrines include the most important and historic American documents.Stone was a great American patriot. He served in the United States Navy and transferred to the Air Force to take advantage of the opportunity to learn about the fast-moving computer technology of the time.Kim May, Pike County Salvation Army director, said Stone was an 11-year member of the Salvation Army’s advisory board.“Otis always did everything asked of him and more,” May said. “He was a Red Kettle sponsor and he would also ring the bell. He supported our other programs including the Angel Tree, camp stew sales and Empty Bowls. When something needed to be done, Otis was willing.Stone was also a dedicated and active member of American Legion Post 70 in Troy, said Bob McLendon, Post commander. “He honored our veterans and our country with his presence at patriotic celebrations.“Otis was one of those people that meant a lot to any organization he was affiliated with,” McLendon said. “Otis would jump right in and do whatever needed to be done. He held several offices including Post commander and, most recently, he was the chaplain.“We are all going to miss Otis because he was a good friend and a dedicated community servant. Otis Stone was the most valuable member of any organization he was in because of his commitment and his willingness to do whatever needed to be done. He did everything right and in the right spirit.” Stone leaves legacy of hearts touched in community Latest Stories Print Article Powell said Stone loved his friends and his family.“Otis was a good daddy and granddaddy. He recently walked his granddaughter down the aisle to be married and was so proud to have that honor,” Powell said. “He had lost a daughter and granddaughter in the last few years but, even through those deeply sad times, he never stopped caring about and doing for others.”Powell said Stone’s wife Lucy was the love of his life and his recent focus had been to spend more time taking care of her.Ralph Black, WTBF, said, too, that Stone was an asset to the station and the community.“He was a faithful volunteer and looked forward to sharing good news with the community and to being a part of the community,” Black said. “Otis didn’t just volunteer at the radio station, he was actively involved in the Troy Exchange Club, the American Legion and the Salvation Army, and of course his church, First Baptist of Troy where he taught Sunday school and held other positions.”last_img read more
