A lawsuit is on the way for Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, the leader of Turkey’s main opposition party.

About 400 out of approximately one thousand files belonging to individuals who were unable to be elected as members of parliament in the new legislative term returned by the Turkish Grand National Assembly (TBMM) Presidency after the Presidential and 28th Term Parliamentary Elections on May 14th have been delivered to the Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office. Investigations regarding the files of former members of parliament, including CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, will be conducted by the Chief Public Prosecutors’ Offices.

MOST OF THE FILES BELONG TO HDP DEPUTIES

Files belonging to the 27th term deputies who lost their immunity after the parliamentary elections were returned to the Presidency by the TBMM to be delivered to the Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office. After the procedure at the Presidency, most of the files belonging to former HDP deputies were sent to the Ministry of Justice and then to the Parliamentary Crimes Investigation Bureau of the Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office for the completion of the investigations.

FILES SENT TO INVESTIGATION OFFICES

Approximately 600 files, currently at the Ministry of Justice, are also expected to be sent to the prosecutor’s office in the coming days. The 400 files delivered to the Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office were sent to the relevant investigation offices after the classification at the Parliamentary Crimes Investigation Bureau.

KILIÇDAROĞLU’S FILE IS ALSO INCLUDED

Investigations regarding the files of former deputies, including CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, will be conducted by the Chief Public Prosecutors’ Offices. The files cover various crimes, including “making propaganda for a terrorist organization,” “inciting hatred and enmity among the public,” “insulting a public official,” and “slander.”

A LAWSUIT MAY BE FILED AFTER TAKING STATEMENTS

The deputy chief public prosecutors responsible for the bureaus to which the files were sent will interview the former members of parliament, who do not have legislative immunity, as part of the investigation. If sufficient evidence is obtained, the prosecutor’s office will file lawsuits against the former deputies.
