Prof Şebnem Korur Fincancı sentenced


At the third and final hearing in the baseless prosecution of human rights defender, forensic medicine expert and head of the Turkish Medical Association Prof Şebnem Korur Fincancı, the verdict was handed down today, finding her guilty of «making propaganda for a terrorist organisation» and sentencing her to two years eight months and 15 days in prison.

The court also ruled that she be released from pre-trial detention where she has been held since 27 October 2022 pending appeal.

The decision to release her is very welcome though the prosecutor can appeal this, as we have seen in other cases. We will be monitoring the developments.

For now, please stop sending appeals – we will issue an update as appropriate one we are clear about her actual release from prison expected later today.
