Content about Trial

June 29, 2012

12th of September 2010 was the date of the referendum in Turkey for some limited but progressive constitutional changes. Some of the 27 changes to the Turkish constitution (a constitution that was forced upon people by the military junta of the 12 September 1980 coup d'état) enabled the civilian courts to put on trial the remaining 2 generals of the military junta. Turkey, for the first time, in its history of multiple military coup d'états, was going to hold accountable the military leaders for the brutal consequences of the coup.

The trial has started in April 2012. Chief of the General Staff General Kenan Evren and General Tahsin Şahinkaya are on trial in Ankara.
