Turkey is the Leading Human Rights Violator

This is the official judgement of the European Court of Human Rights in its report on the year 2009.

In total, the court issued 341 rulings against Turkey, far higher than any other state. This represented almost one fifth of the court's unfavourable judgements in total.

Moreover, the human rights situation in Turkey seems to be deteriorating. The number of complaints against it to the ECHR has risen from 2828 in 2007 to 4474 in 2009.
