Brussels, 18 July 2012

Turkey (application no. 9078/06), the European Court of Human Rights held, unanimously, that there had been a violation of Article 3 (prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment) and a violation of Article 9 (freedom of thought, conscience and religion) of the European Convention on Human Rights.
