This Week in Turkey‘s guest was Levent Köker, a professor of public law. Professor Köker evaluated the state of law in Turkey in light of the Defense March launched by bar associations across Turkey in protest to the growing pressure from the ruling Justice and Development Party. Professor Köker also evaluated the decisions relating to Istanbul Provincial head for the CHP Canan Kaftancıoğlu’s prison sentence, and the Constitutional Court’s decision relating to former HDP co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş’s imprisonment. Professor Köker also assessed how far AKP is willing to stretch the limits of legitimacy in the face of growing opposition.
