The leader of Workers’ Party of Turkey Dogu Perincek insulted Christians while speaking about reports on Amal Clooney‘s participation in the court hearings on his case,.
Learning about the reports, Perincek said: “this woman can come to the hearings, but even if the wife of Jesus comes, they have no chances to succeed”, Oda TV reported.
Amal Ramzi Alamuddin, wife of famous actor George Clooney, will represent Armenia at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in the “Perincek v. Switzerland” case. The hearing will be held in Strasbourg next month.
The Government of Switzerland recently decided to petition that the Dogu Perincek case be referred for a review by the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). On December 17, 2013, the ECtHR ruled in favor of Armenian Genocide-denying Turkish politician Dogu Perincek’s lawsuit that was filed against Switzerland. The said judgment by the ECtHR was made on the grounds of freedom of speech. In 2008, a Swiss court had convicted Perincek for denying the Armenian Genocide. Dogu Perincek is Chairman of the socialist Workers’ Party of Turkey. In addition, he heads the Talat Pasha organization, which actively fights against the Armenian Genocide’s recognition in Europe.
