Scientist and human rights defender Prof. Dr. Baskın Oran has been threatened by persons using the name of TİT (Turkish Revenge Brigade).
“TİT” was also a signature used by those persons who tried to kill Akın Birdal, former president of Human Rights Association, on 12 May 1998.
The government and all of the public security bodies must guarantee the right to life of Baskın Oran. The sources of the threats should be revealed.
The principle of rule of law can only be implemented through fast, result oriented, and just processes, methods, and mechanisms. Only under those circumstances we can speak of effective domestic legal systems.
