Turkish Minority associations to make contacts in Strasbourg

The President of the Xanthi Turkish Union Ozan Ahmetoğlu and Lawyer İlker Çavuşoğlu travelled to Strasbourg for the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) rulings on the Turkish minority associations.

The President of the Turkish Union of Xanthi (ITB) Ozan Ahmetoğlu and Lawyer İlker Çavuşoğlu travelled to Strasbourg for the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) judgements regarding the Turkish Union of Xanthi and other Turkish minority associations in the "Bekirusta Group of Cases".

Making a written statement regarding the contacts in Strasbourg, İTB President Ozan Ahmetoğlu stated the following

"As Xanthi Turkish Union, we are once again in Strasbourg for the judgements of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) regarding the associations of the Turkish minority in Western Thrace which are not implemented by Greece.

We have meetings with the institutions affiliated to the Council of Europe and the permanent missions of Council of Europe member states in Strasbourg.

Within this framework, we are in contact with the Turkish Union of Xanthi and other Turkish minority associations in the "Bekirusta Group of Cases", prior to the meeting of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, with the demand for an end to the ongoing injustice and victimisation due to the non-implementation of the ECtHR judgments by Greece.

Our demand and expectation is that Greece should respect international law and implement the ECtHR judgements on Turkish minority associations, which it has not implemented for 15 years, restore and recognise the legal status and legal personality of the Xanthi Turkish Union and other Turkish minority associations, and end the injustice, victimisation and injustice since 1983."
