With continuation of his repressive policies, Erdogan turns judiciary into political weapon

With the continuation of the systematic campaigns of repression and arbitrary arrests waged against the opponents of his policies , the President of the Turkish regime, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has turned the judiciary in his country into a political weapon through which he achieves what he wants after controlling this apparatus and ending his independence completely.

Henri J. Barkey is the Cohen Professor of International Relations at Lehigh University and an adjunct senior fellow for Middle East studies at the Council on Foreign Relations published an article in the Washington Post on Erdogan's dominance of the judiciary to serve his interests. He stressed that the head of the Turkish regime has systematically turned the judiciary into a tool to attack his opponents and eliminate  any opposition to his policy.
