Turkey's Constitutional Court ruled that participants of the 2013 Gezi Park Protests were incorrect in petitioning the top court on the grounds of the violation of their "right to organize meetings and rallies," according to the decision published in the Official Gazette on Oct. 21.
The top court said that the petition that the protesters' right to gather had been violated was unfounded because the petitioners had failed to exhaust all other venues to seek justice before petitioning the Constitutional Court.
The petitioners had accused the courts of violating their right to demonstrate with accusations of conducting criminal activity for a terrorist organization.
The top court also ruled against the petition that the protesters' right to demonstrate had been violated with accusations of bringing firearms to a demonstration and failing to disperse upon warnings from the police.
The Constitutional Court ruled that the protesters failed to provide sufficient evidence of the violation of their rights, and said that the petitioners would be liable for all judiciary charges.
