Echr to rule on Ocalan next week

The European Court of Human Rights is expected to issue a verdict on May 12 that could pave the way for the retrial of imprisoned terrorist PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan.

Sources stated that the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe will also have a say on whether Ocalan should be retried by Turkish judges if the court rules that his right to a free trial was violated.
