Turquie : Refus de mise en liberté pour Osman Kavala
Publié le :

Info Collectif VAN – www.collectifvan.org – Accusé d’avoir fomenté et financé la révolte de Gezi Park à Istanbul en juin 2013, le philanthrope turc Osman Kavala, écroué depuis 603 jours à la prison de Silivri, risque la perpétuité. Les premières audiences de son procès se sont déroulées ces lundi 24 et mardi 25 juin 2019, dans la salle d’audience du tribunal de la prison de haute sécurité de Silivri, à la périphérie d’Istanbul, où comparaissaient également quinze autres intellectuels turcs. À l’issue de ces premières audiences, les juges ont refusé sa remise en liberté conditionnelle : Osman Kavala reste donc en prison, au moins jusqu’aux prochaines audiences prévues les 18 et 19 juillet. Erdogan peut sans crainte organiser de véritables procès politiques, nul au Conseil de l’Europe ne s’avisera d’exclure la Turquie de cette instance internationale soi-disant garante des droits humains.

Le compte Twitter GeziyiSavunuyoruz @gezisavunmasi a publié en live des tweets en anglais reprenant les déclarations d’Osman Kavala (OK) à la barre du Tribunal de Silivri. Le Collectif VAN les reproduit tels quels ici, du plus ancien au plus récent.

Lundi 24 juin 2019

Du plus ancien au plus récent


• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
The audience has been taken to the courtroom. There are still people waiting at the door to enter.
05:04 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
Security guards say only five international and 20 national reporters will be allowed to enter the courtroom. They said it is the court decision.
05:10 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
There is a limit of three lawyers for the defendants.
05:31 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
Osman Kavala and Yigit Aksakoglu, defendants under arrest, were brought to the court. When they entered the courtroom, the audience stood up and applauded.
05:46 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
Presiding Judge: Our goal is to start the trial immediately. There are people who haven't appeared in court for long time.
05:53 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
Osman Kavala and YiÄźit AksakoÄźlu, defendants under arrest, and the defendants without arrest Mucella Yapici, Cigdem Mater, Inanc Ekmekci, Ali Hakan Altinay, Mine Ozerden, Can Atalay, Tayfun Kahraman and Yigit Ali Ekmekci are in the courtroom.
05:57 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
Kavala's lawyer Koyuncu: Code of criminal procedure has changed. Until March, we couldn't examine the file because the investigation was confidential. When we reached the file, we saw that there was no judicial decision in the TAPEs.
06:04 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
Osman Kavala: Your honors, the accusation for which I have been imprisoned for the past 20 months is predicated upon a series of claims that have no factual basis and defy logic, claims that have been substantiated by evidence.
06:16 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
Osman Kavala: It was claimed that the events at Gezi were planned and financed by Soros as an attempt to overthrow the government, and that I transferred these funds as the director and organizer of the events at Gezi.
06:17 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: Statements like “it was understood that secret weapons were standing at the ready” are found in the indictment. These are claims that violate dignity.
06:23 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: It would not be possible to forget the torture and oppression of the military during coup of 12 September 1980. At no point in my life, I have supported changing government by any means other than free elections.
06:24 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: Over my entire career, I have supported democracy, and I have taken part in the establishment of civil society organizations.
06:25 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: With these organizations, I have supported values that would enable peace, dialogue, and reconciliation among different social groups.
06:27 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: I wrote articles criticizing the lawlessness in the Ergenekon and Balyoz cases. In activities I have carried out for nearly 40 years, all my statements to the public relayed the truth as it is without distorting it.
06:28 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: I have never conducted activities for a secret structure and I have never had a relationship with any secret organization.
06:29 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: I am not speaking in code. All of my conversations were conducted from the same cell phone and all of my exchanges from the same computer.
06:33 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: It is not possible to understand how the counsel for the prosecution arrived at the notion of a coup.
06:34 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: In my interrogation 20 months ago, the questions regarding economic relationships in the indictment were not directed to me, I had no knowledge of them. The prosecutor did not interrogate me before preparing the fiction in the indictment.
06:36 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: In my interrogation at the police station, it was said that the recording of my telephone conversations were taken after 30 July 2012. But the recordings concerning the Gezi events are from a later time.
06:44 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: There is no proof offered in the indictment to substantiate that I was preparing a plan for such an attempt.
06:45 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: I have no relationship whatsoever with Otpor, and my sole contact with Alabora was two telephone conversations that took place after the Gezi events had already begun. The claim that my time abroad is related to the Gezi events has no foundation.
06:46 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: In the indictment, it is claimed that, in order to execute this plan, I carried out activities with the Open Society Foundation, of which I am a member of the board of directors and which is financed by Soros, and with Anadolu KĂĽltĂĽr, of which I am the board president.
06:49 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: There is no proof whatsoever that those who participated in the different activities of different organizations and in collaboration were acting in secret, or that they received their commands from me.
06:54 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: In none of my conversations did I command any actions. The claims are utterly fantastic. The fiction of the indictment has no logical foundation. I know some of the people on trial here from projects that I carried out with Anadolu KĂĽltĂĽr.
06:55 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: The claims that the Gezi events were a scheme aiming to overthrow the government, and that this scheme was carried out by people working at different organizations, calls to mind the Ergenekon case.
07:00 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: This is not a coincidence. It is apparent that the prosecutors who asserted this claim were FETÖ/PDY militants. This was specified in the indictment with the claim that “all the evidence must be re-evaluated”
07:01 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: But what is clear is that not just the tapes, but the text of the indictment were prepared by FETĂ–/PDY militants
07:02 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: As can be expected, the practice of drafting indictments without evidence based on police reports that used newspaper articles is a practice from the time when the FETĂ– organization dominated the courts.
07:12 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: The claim in the indictment that Soros’ financing was criminal was based on the idea that it had become a mode of extortion. But this issue doesn’t overcome the absence of evidence; to the contrary, it highlights it.
07:16 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: It would not be possible for such a financial to take place without leaving traces. There are no resources that were transferred through me to the Gezi events.
07:16 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: All of the funds that we received from the Open Society Foundation were used for cultural projects, exhibitions, etc. All of Anadolu Kültür’s accounts have passed audits. The account activities between Open Society and Anadolu AŞ in 2013 are no different from other years.
07:20 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: It is public knowledge as to which projects were allocated the 2.13 million lira received that year. None of them has any ties to Gezi.
07:20 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: Prosecutor’s claim that Soros funded Gezi, which forms basis of the accusations against me, are not rooted in any evidence. The police statement dated 6 March 2018, which describes the MASAK report, asserts that suspects’ names were not found among those in money transfers
07:28 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: What evidence emerged after my arrest to render the MASAK report insignificant? The argument in the indictment does not square with factual circumstances, it is not supported by the evidence.
07:39 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: On 26 June 2013, GermiyanoÄźlu calls me and tells me about some activities he is thinking of carrying out. He says, We would like to invite you in order to expand the Gezi forums.
07:42 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: After speaking with me, he relates to AksakoÄźlu that I said nothing concrete. It is clear that at no point was I making any kind of command.
07:43 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: I understood the thoughts he expressed about broadening and deepening the movement quite naturally as the deepening and popularization of the ideas at the forums.
07:44 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: Despite this, the claims about “the deepening and broadening of the Gezi protests” are written as though they’ve come from my own mouth.
07:45 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: Despite this, the claims about “the deepening and broadening of the Gezi protests” are written as though they’ve come from my own mouth.
07:45 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: When Ă–zerden called me he discussed buying gas masks for young people. I told him that if a bank account was opened, I would provide support. In the indictment, it is claimed that I opened a couple of bank accounts through Ă–zerden and gathered up money.
07:46 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: It is clear that whoever wrote the denunciation letter was someone who listened to my conversation with Ă–zerden. Because no such account was opened. In the audits of the Open Society Foundation, as well, it is clear that absolutely no funds were used for that purpose.
07:51 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: These are not the only manipulations in the indictment. I likewise had no knowledge of meetings at Garaj Istanbul or Anadolu Cam. On what grounds is it believed that this could have been done through Anadolu KĂĽltĂĽr AĹž?
07:52 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: The documentary film production referenced in the indictment did not take place. Even if it had, it would offer no foundation to the indictment. Anadolu KĂĽltĂĽr AĹž supports art projects, not agitation; it encourages viewers to look at social issues with a new perspective.
07:53 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: A film project on the Gezi events was not conceived as a vehicle for popularizing Gezi but as a film to be shown at international festivals.
07:55 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: It is impossible to draw a relationship between my support for the establishment of a prospective media organ with what is claimed in the indictment. The goal in this project was to create an environment for journalists who had lost their jobs.

07:58 - 24 juin 2019
• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
I conducted a few interviews on this project. An interview concerning a collaboration with The Guardian illuminates just what kind of media organ was envisioned.
08:00 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: None of these examples demonstrates that I, or Anadolu KĂĽltĂĽr, transferred finances to the Gezi events. This claim relies on a number of newspaper articles that suggest Soros supported Gezi.
08:04 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: This claim was first made by some political actors, and then the press made it need. But there is no objective reality to any of the news stories on this claim.
08:04 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: In order to bolster his argument, the prosecutor makes the baseless claim that Soros was active in Egypt and Tunisia and that he was an important actor in their revolutionary processes.
08:07 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: Not only is there no concrete basis to claim that Soros was active in these places, it also ignores the popular movements in those countries. These revolutions all took place by internal dynamics.
08:08 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: Soros’ name appears [in the SETA report] as one of the external actors regarding the coup against Morsi. But while it examines the popular movements in Tunisia and Egypt, it pays no heed to the fact that there had not previously been free elections in those countries.
08:10 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: Mass protests in countries where the institutions of democracy work and where free elections take place do not cause shifts in power. The Gezi events have been the topic of many national and international academic works.
08:11 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: Gezi events have been characterized as the reaction of a people who thought they did not have the right to speak on topics affecting their daily lives, and who felt the deficit of their representation.
08:14 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: This approach drew attention to the reactions to the projects that restricted public space and commodified city space, as well as the reaction to the neoliberal approaches that emerged at the same time.
08:15 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: In one research project that examined the contents and usage of twitter messages, it was shown that these messages were used primarily for sharing information, and that there were very few messages intending to manipulate.
09:51 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: The common point of these articles is that the Gezi events emerged spontaneously, without a plan, that the protests were not tied horizontally to a center and had no leader.
09:52 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
OK: None of the research done up until now has claimed that the Gezi events were a previously planned project intended to overthrow the government.
10:01 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: Parks in city centers have great significance for the residents of the city, and in contemporary democracies, such parks are inviolable. Gezi Park, too, was a very valuable space.
10:02 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: The definition of the Gezi events offered in the indictment is different from the one offered in previous evaluations, scientific research, and the report of the Human Rights Center of Turkey.
10:03 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: The first protest in Gezi Park began when the tents where some young people were staying were torn down and the wall across from the Divan Hotel was set on fire.
10:03 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: In the self-defense that the government sent to the European Court of Human Rights, they claimed that the Gezi Park protests were peaceful at first, but were later abused.
10:04 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: The most important aspect mentioned in the Turkey Human Rights Report was the police intervention. Despite the fact that Ministry of the Interior declared that tear gas should not be fired directly at people, the canisters were fired directly at people and many were wounded.
10:05 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: The means of using force, such as tear gas, were used disproportionately and affected the peaceable demonstrators participating in the protests as well as those who had no connection to the demonstration. (These are all claims from the report by Human Rights Center of Turkey)
10:05 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: The fact that police intervention was such an important element in the growth of the protests is a sign that the Gezi events were not planned beforehand. On the contrary, it shows that the police must have played a role in the scheme.
10:06 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: There can be different interpretations of the aims of the demonstrations regarding what played a role in all the different activities during the Gezi events. Defining Gezi as a planned attempt by a center, against the objective facts, ignores all of these differences.
10:07 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: It is unacceptable that the counsel for the prosecution, while it makes accusations about a coup, is recognizing such an intangible evaluation as the basis for the accusations, just as in the Ergenekon cases.
10:10 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: The conspicuously strange thing about the indictment is that it does not include George Soros among its suspects claimed to have organized against the government with me, nor does it include his statement.
10:11 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: This situation shows that the indictment is trying to find an excuse for my incarceration-turned-punishment, and to delegitimization the movements of the people who participated in the Gezi events.
10:11 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: I believe that our activities are legitimate civil society activities that strengthen democracy. Maintaining Gezi Park as a park up to the present is in keeping with the government’s policy of increasing the number of parks and gardens.
10:12 - 24 juin 2019

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi 24 juin
OK: I am no different from the hundreds of thousands of people who took part in Gezi, and I demand my release and exoneration. —end of Osman Kavala’s testimony—
10:16 - 24 juin 2019

/////

• • #GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
YA: It claims that I received orders from Osman Kavala in a 35-second phone conversation. Knowing Mr. Kavala is not a crime, of course, but I don't really know him anyway. In all of the recordings related to me, there's not just no violence, there's not even any insults.
10:49 - 24 juin 2019

Mardi 25 juin 2019

Du plus ancien au plus récent


#GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
The prosecutor rejected the demand for the removal as illegal of wiretapping evidence; demanded the execution of arrest warrants for absent defendants and the continuation of pre-trial detention of both Kavala & AksakoÄźlu. The court takes a short recess for its interim decision.
14:35 - 25 juin 2019

#GeziyiSavunuyoruz‏ @gezisavunmasi
The interim decision is announced: YiÄźit AksakoÄźlu is released under judicial control. Osman Kavala is not released, his pre-trial detention continues. The next hearing will be held on 18-19 July. #GeziyiSavunuyoruz
