FOREIGN MINISTRY TO FIGHT SWISS CHARGES AGAINST TTK HEAD



The Foreign Ministry yesterday determined its strategy concerning legal charges brought against Turkish Historical Society (TTK) head Yusuf Halacooglu by a local prosecutor in Zurich, Switzerland. Halacoglu was charged due to remarks he made denying the so-called Armenian genocide allegations. Under this strategy, Halacoglu will make no declaration to the Swiss prosecutor or court. If the court rules against Halacoglu, and thus against Turkey, Halacoglu will reject this decision at a superior court in Switzerland. If the superior court accepts his arguments and overrules the decision of the local court, Turkey will be able to use it as a trump card against other countries which take a similar stance. However, if the Swiss courts convict him, Halacoglu will apply to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
