Parliament late on Tuesday approved legislation to establish a law enforcement monitoring commission. The establishment of the commission is one of the 72 criteria that Turkey needs to fulfill for the EU to grant Turkish nationals visa-free travel to its Schengen zone. The approved legislation, which covers the National Police, Gendarmerie General Command and Coast Guard Command, aims to bring these law enforcement agencies and their officers in line with European standards by establishing one authority to monitor and assess complaints of law enforcement officers' misconduct.
The approved law also aims to enhance law enforcement officers' liability, develop transparency and develop a faster and more effective complaint system to monitor and record at a central system the actions and operations carried out by administrative units resulting from their actions, attitudes and manners that require disciplinary punishment or alleged crimes of general law enforcement officers.
Accordingly, an independent Law Enforcement Monitoring Commission in the Interior Ministry will be established. This seven-member commission will be responsible for recording and tracking all complaints about law enforcement officer misconduct. The commission will also be responsible for monitoring and initiating investigations and will cooperate with the civil sector and send reports to Parliament.
