A victory for the women in Turkey! Prosecutor of the Council of State: The decision to withdraw from the Istanbul Convention is unlawful

In the case of the Diyarbakir Bar Association Women’s Rights Center for Turkey’s exit from the Istanbul Convention with a presidential decree, the high court decided in favor of the women. In the case for the cancellation of the top-down presidential order, the Prosecutor of the Council of State argued that the decision to withdraw from the contract was openly unlawful.

Tayyip Erdogan’s midnight decree and the decision to withdraw from the Istanbul Convention had been charged by the Women’s Rights Group of the Bar Association of Diyarbakır. In the case brought by the Diyarbakir Bar Association Women’s Rights Center, demanding that the Constitutional Court cancel the decision to withdraw from the Istanbul Convention, which protected women’s rights, the Prosecutor of the Council of State came to the ruling that the presidential decree violated the Turkish Constitution.

The prosecutor’s statement read:
Since the Act No. 6251 on the ratification of the contract terminated by the Presidential Decree in question has not been repealed by the Parliament or a new law has not been passed that it is appropriate to terminate the contract before the Decision of the President in question is taken, it has been concluded that there is no compliance with the law by the principle of parallelism in the authority and procedure in the Presidential Decree.
For the reasons described, it is thought that the regulation in question should be canceled.

Women across the country had protested and rallied against the decision to pull out of an agreement that protected women’s rights. Crime in Turkey against women has risen exponentially as the country moves more towards Islam under Erdogan.
