Recently, the well-known Turkish human rights activist Osman Kavala, who was sentenced to life imprisonment, called the court’s decision unexpected. According to him, the Turkish court’s decision completely contradicts European law, the fair judicial system, and the decisions taken. 

According to him, because of this decision, Turkey will be in a difficult situation. Osman Kavala’s decision provoked sharp criticism from the Turkish opposition, a number of Western countries and structures, including the United States. The State Department expressed deep concern about this decision, considering it contrary to human rights and the rule of law. After the verdict was announced, thousands of people in different districts came out demanding justice.
