  • Despite our first announcement that the Tribunal would be held between September 21 and 25, the assembly of the Turkey Tribunal in Geneva will be rescheduled from 21-25th September until late autumn due to current coronavirus travel restrictions. However, The Turkey Tribunal will announce the launch of a series of reports on the state of Turkish human rights beginning with “Torture in Turkey Today” from August 20, 2020.
