While a state of emergency has been declared following the failed coup, the Turkish government has announced the temporarily suspension of the European Convention of Human Rights.

FIFCJ follows the news from Turkey with concern and expresses its solidarity with the 60,000 civil service employees detained or removed from their functions in an internationally criticized purge. We will always defend democracy, its institutions, and the respect of Human Rights.
