TURKISH LAW IS TAKING STEPS TOWARDS OUT OF COURT PROCEDURES

Multinational corporations (MNC) like to invest and explore upcoming economies and developing countries that have flexible legislation towards investors and related litigation. Fast and effective dispute resolutions as well as legal and economic foreseeability are key factors in minds of investors while making the critical decision of where to invest. A prudent investor would first take council with his lawyers and investigate what would happen if everything goes wrong. As globalisation ties each country with unseen economic and politic ties many countries compete in this sphere. Custom regulations as well as legal statuses of foreigners are important and making easily comprehendible norms with flexibility towards traders and investors allows economic growth.

It is disputed whether alternative dispute resolution methods are more effective than government litigation, however, it is uncontested that it is shorter and much faster than court proceedings. In the minds of MNCs and foreign investors arise doubts whether, for example, Turkish courts could maintain impartiality when one of the sides is Turkey and another a foreigner. This is the reason why arbitration was born. International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) in Paris, Vienna International Arbitration Centre (VIAC), New York International Arbitration Centre (NYIAC), Russian Arbitration Association (RAA) and Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) are the main providers of safe harbour to dispute resolutions for foreign investors and MNCs. There has been a gap in geographical location between these centres as Middle East has no mainly dominant arbitral centre in this sphere. Istanbul – Turkey being in between Europe and Asia was seen as a perfect placement for a new Arbitral Centre which was consequently opened in 2015 – Istanbul Arbitration Centre (ISTAC).

Additionally Turkey has adopted set of rules that also raised many eyebrows – mandatory mediation. In its nature both of these words should never even exist in the same sentence since the essence of mediation is its voluntariness. Luckily arbitrary mediation is the main rule and international disputes are not touched by the aforementioned “Quasimodo” rule.

Leaving out numerous disputes on this topic it is safe to say that this approach is nonetheless a big step in Turkish Legal Life and hopefully other steps to follow would be prudent and well calculated.

ESCAPING WORKERS’ RIGHTS

Turkish Workers Law is in developing state and relating legislation leaves many doubts in minds weather it indeed meets the needs of Turkish workers’ rights. Every year countless workplace related accidents happen resulting in loss of lives of many workers and the ruling party seems to express condolences to the families and continue disregard towards safety regulations of the workplace.

Turkish Model

General principles of Turkish Work Law is codified within 4857 Work Code and 5510 Social Security and General Health Insurance Code. Both of these regulations are stipulated as supreme norms and have an additional enforcement fulcrum within 2709 Turkish Constitution of 1982 Artt. 12, 18, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 60, 61, 62, 65, 90.

Turkish employers additionally contract with Insurance Companies for Employers’ Economic Liability Insurance for additional protection against action suites. Employers educate workers on health regulations and encompass the environment of the work space within the limits of safety regulations set within supreme provisions of the aforementioned codes.

European Model

If we take a look on leading liberal systems that ensure effective protection for workers we see ourselves comparing Turkey to European Countries. European Union has a set of rules that are considered supreme law in contrast to national legislation of each Member State (MS). These rules consist of written legislation adopted and signed by each MS representative in the European Council (EC) and enforced by European Parliament (EP); and as a second pillar, court orders set generally applicable European rules and principles of Law that meet present needs. Workers’ rights are codified in Treaty of European Union (TEU) as well as Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). This means that EC sees these types of rights as fundamental human rights which are protected and enforced by the Courts of EU.

In this regard MSs don’t have any authority in this sphere of law in codification of national legislation because Art. 19 TEU stipulates a strict prohibition

“Member States shall provide remedies sufficient to ensure effective legal protection in the fields covered by Union law.

Moreover “The European Court of Justice (ECJ) has developed the requirement of effectiveness of EU law as a general legal principle, which includes an obligation on national courts to ensure they give adequate effect to EU law in cases arising before them.”  Therefore workers’ rights are protected

Putin and Erdogan agree on need to boost efforts for Syria peace

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan shake hands during a previous meeting in Ankara in September.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed Monday on the need to boost efforts to achieve a lasting political settlement in Syria.

Despite being on opposing sides of the Syrian conflict, Russia and Turkey have been working together since a 2016 reconciliation deal ended a crisis caused by the shooting down of a Russian warplane.

During four hours of talks at the Black Sea resort of Sochi, in southwest Russia, the two sides agreed on the need to do more to stabilise Syria, Putin said.

“We are united in the need to increase efforts to ensure the long-term stabilisation (of Syria), above all to advance the process of a political settlement,” the Russian leader told reporters after the meeting.

“We agreed that there is now a base which allows us to focus on the political process,” said Erdogan.

The pair last met in Ankara in September, when they agreed to push for the creation of a “de-escalation” zone in Syria’s key northern province of Idlib, in addition to others already proposed.

“Our relationship has been restored almost to its full capacity,” Putin said ahead of the talks, adding that he was glad to see the Turkish leader.

 

– ‘Mutual need’ –

Their efforts have helped bring about a de-escalation of violence in parts of Syria, though fighting continues.

Trump praises Turkey’s president as a friend

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday praised Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan as a friend despite tensions between the two countries over Turkish security officials involved in street fighting with protesters during a visit to Washington in May.

U.S. President Donald Trump meets with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey during the U.N. General Assembly in New York, U.S., September 21, 2017.

Meeting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, Trump hailed Erdogan’s leadership in Turkey and said Erdogan “has become a friend of mine.”

“I think now we’re as close as we’ve ever been,” he said.

Eleven people were hurt in what Washington’s police chief described as a brutal attack on peaceful demonstrators outside the Turkish ambassador’s residence.
