Motion text

That this House welcomes the decision of the European Court of Human Rights that Leyla Zana and three other Kurdish members of the Turkish Parliament were denied a fair trial; regrets these four former MPs have served seven years in prison as a result; calls for the immediate release of Leyla Zana and her fellow Kurdish Democracy Party MPs Hatip Dicle, Orhan Dogan and Selim Sadak; and believes that if Turkey does not release these prisoners of conscience immediately they will have shown themselves unfit for consideration for membership of the European Union.
