0

Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmuş told in a press conference on Thursday that Turkey will suspend the European Convention on Human Rİghts (ECHR) during the three-month-long state of emergency that was announced by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan last night in order to ramp up the large-scale crackdown across the country following last week’s failed coup attempt.

Kurtulmuş said that the 15th article of the ECHR allows the suspension under certain circumstances.
