THE SECOND JUDICIAL REFORM PACKAGE

The Second Judicial Reform Package, approved on 26 August 2011 with a government order carrying the force of law, was generally related to the structure of the Justice Ministry and the regulation of administrative judicial bodies. This “KHK No. 44 on the Amendment of Several Laws and KHKs by Amending the KHK on the Organization and Duties of the Justice Ministry” consisted of 44 articles.

The justification for the order was “to contribute to the more effective and efficient operation of judicial services.” Nevertheless, many of the order’s articles were struck down by the High Constitutional Court. The articles that remain in force governed the establishment of a Department of Human Rights within the Justice Ministry’s Bureau of International Relations and International Law. They also amended the Law on the Council of State (Danıştay), the Law on the Court of Cassation (Yargıtay), the Law on Judges and Prosecutors, the Law on the Justice Academy, and the HSYK Law.
