ECHR Rules Against Turkey In Dink Case

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled for the widow and brother of assassinated journalist Hrant Dink and against Turkey, finding that the Turkish government did not adequately investigate his murder or protect his rights under Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights. It awarded Mrs. Dink and her children 100,000 Euros, her brother in law 5,000 Euros, and the family court costs of nearly 30,000 Euros.
