BHRC closely monitored the “Gezi Park” trial of sixteen leading civil society individuals in Turkey and conducted trial observations of this case, on various dates between June 2019 and February 2020. The trial ostensibly ended on 18 February 2020 with the acquittal of nine defendants, although the case is not yet concluded against others who are based abroad. At the time of drafting this report, the Public Prosecutor has appealed the acquittals and this appeal remains unresolved.
