The legal opinion submitted by W. Clegg QC & S.Baker That ByLock Arrests Are Farce that ByLock Arrests Are Farce
Category : LEGAL OPINIONS
The legal opinion submitted by By William Clegg QC & Simon Baker on 25th July 2017 coupled with a Technical Report on the use of Bylock App prepared by Thomas K. Moore sheds new light into the catastrophic scale of crackdown and arbitrary detentions in Turkey in the aftermath of the attempted coup in July 2016. The opinion clearly scraps the use of Bylock App as evidence of membership of a terrorist organisation and underlines some of the most flagrant human rights violations such as right to freedom and security, right to a fair trial and prohibition of retrospective criminality. The following is a summary of the most salient aspects of the 54-page long opinion consisting of a section on legal opinion and a technical analysis on the reliance on use of Bylock App as evidence.
