The European Court of Human Rights has convicted Turkey of violating the right to freedom of expression of two university students who have been subjected to criminal prosecutions for a long time after they published a report on the situation of minorities in Ankara.

In 2005, Ibrahim Kaboglu and Baskin Oran were accused of inciting hatred and defaming the Turkish judicial authorities against the background of the content of a report that referred to problems related to the protection of minorities and sparked intense controversy in Turkey.

In 2007, the two students filed an appeal with the European Court of Human Rights, and after 13 years, the court ruled that the criminal prosecutions against them constituted interference in the exercise of their right to freedom of expression.

The seven judges of the court confirmed that the criminal mechanism adopted by the Turkish judiciary had been stuck for a long time, lasting 3 years and 4 months, adding to it 9 months that the criminal investigation took.

Based on the foregoing, the court unanimously convicted Turkey of violating the freedom of expression guaranteed by Article 10 of the European Bill of Human Rights and imposed on it to pay 2000 euros to each of the two applicants after inflicting moral harm on them.
