The European Court of Human Rights was considered to be very important in Turkey, mostly because it was perceived as the last resort for the frequent injustices within that State. The Court’s judgments and decisions were followed closely, and the outcomes of the pending cases were expected impatiently. The press releases of the Court were widely shared among Turkish social media users. Scholars were zealous to study its case-law. Lately, all this began to change. The Court seems to be losing its flag-bearer position on fundamental rights.
