The Law Society of England and Wales (TLS) and Lawyers’ Rights Watch Canada (LRWC) submitted an Amicus Curiae brief to the Turkish Constitutional Court in the case of the two detained Turkish lawyers Ayse Acinikli and Ramazan Demir – who have since been released after 156 days of pre-trial detention - on inter alia the right to freedom of expression and pre-trial release. The Amicus was endorsed by Lawyers for Lawyers (L4L).
