Canavcı and Others v. Türkiye (nos. 24074/19, 44839/19, and 9077/20)

The case concerns lawyer-client confidentiality in the aftermath of the attempted coup d’état of 15 July 2016.

The applicants are three Turkish nationals: Mehmet Ali Canavcı, Ramazan Çaylı and Harun Altun. All three applicants were placed in pre-trial detention in 2016: the first two for membership of the FETÖ/PDY and for attempting to overthrow the Government of the Republic of Türkiye or preventing it wholly or partly from performing its duties; and, the third for membership of an armed terrorist organisation.

Relying on Articles 8 (right to respect for private and family life) and 13 (right to an effective remedy), the applicants complain about the monitoring and recording of their meetings with their lawyers while they were in prison, pursuant to a legislative decree which had been adopted under the state of emergency declared in the aftermath of the attempted coup d’état.

Violation of Article 8
