'Closure not possible in terms of ECHR': AKP
In a defense made to the Turkish Constitutional Court Monday, Turkey's ruling Justice & Development (AK) Party said that the closure of AK Party is not possible according to case-law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).

Had the ECHR's decisions were taken into consideration, such a closure case could not have been filed at the Constitutional Court, said the AK Party defense.

It is impossible to think of a political party that was established to protect basic rights and freedoms as a threat to democracy, said the AK Party in its defense.

The AK Party has not been involved in any attempt to undermine the basic principles of the constitutional democratic order during its rule in power for the past six years, said the AK Party defense.

The AK Party is not a continuation of any political party, the AK Party said in its defense.

Aside from published and announced ones, the AK Party does not have any secret program or agenda, the AK Party defense also said.
