It has been revealed that Judge Ahmet Çakmak, who objected to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s candidacy for a third term, was dismissed from his profession on July 6th.
The Supreme Election Council (YSK) had not seen any obstacle to Erdoğan’s candidacy for a “third term”.
Following the initiation of an investigation into the objection to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s third candidacy, the judge Ahmet Çakmak, who came to the agenda, was dismissed from his profession.
It was learned that Çakmak was given two penalties of reassignment as a result of investigations initiated based on reasons such as using bold font in official correspondence, stating in a petition, “I will go to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), and I will mention that my case consists of events that will be a parody of the Güldür Güldür Show,” demanding the arrest of a 12-year-old child, and requesting the placement of a sports hall in the vacant area of the courthouse.
According to Cumhuriyet newspaper, as a result of the dismissal from the profession of a person who was given two penalties of reassignment according to the Judges and Prosecutors Law, the Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSK), Second Chamber of HSK, decided to dismiss Çakmak from his profession on July 6th. Due to the ongoing appeal process, Çakmak was suspended from duty. The decision has not yet been notified to Çakmak.
Çakmak’s lawyer, Mustafa Karadağ, reacted to the decision. Karadağ stated, “We made our defense against the dismissal penalty investigation immediately before the holiday, and they hastily issued the penalty right after the holiday. After the notification, we will exercise our legal rights. HSK will remain on the dark and questionable side of judicial history due to the investigations into Judge Ahmet Çakmak. HSK lacks a conscience and adopts a hostile attitude. It is under the command of the government,” he said.
