PPJ- 10 March 2018
Platform for Peace & Justice has released its latest report entitled “Cancellation of Turkish Passports and Prevention of the Freedom of Movement”. The report which consists of 17 pages analyses the legal ground for passport cancellations according to domestic and international laws referring to Turkish Constitution and the European Convention on the Human Rights. Shedding light on the abusive use of the cancellation of passports by the current Turkish government, the report illustrates that the long-lasting State of Emergency regime is established deliberately to condemn dissidents to civil death not only by dismissing and arresting them but also destroying their hope and abilities to start new lives elsewhere.
The report also examines cases in which the Red Notice of INTERPOL is also abused by the Turkish government to harras dissidents abroad.
