A tiny ECHO on EHCR 325, 15.10.2015 “Grand Chamber Judgment” Press Release
Having read the Press Release, and later on the “Judgment” of some 130 pages, I thought I’d better share my disappointment with the public regarding the very long, intricate judgment of the Grand Chamber. I discovered too many errors and omissions when the “historical facts” were being referred to. In fact, it was shocking to see that they knew so little and were at times wrongly informed.
For a while, I thought whether I should write a long commentary or perhaps a book, pointing out the factual mistakes in the Judgment, simply because the lawyers and the judges did not know history well enough and no one on the Turkish side corrected them when they had erred. Naturally such a study would take a few months and would challenge the highest authorities of Law in Europe and augment the dislike for plain “truth defenders and their insistence on the truth”. What is more, probably no one would support such a challenge (with the evidence of documents) at this late and final stage. Therefore, this is a short abstract of what can be written on the subject . . .
