The post made by one of the Yıldız Technical University students turned into a lawsuit that has been going on for years. Yıldız Technical University Rectorate, which initiated a disciplinary investigation against the student and suspended him from school, went to court with his former student due to this decision. The student was right in the process leading up to the Constitutional Court . A student named
Ahmet Batur shared a post on his Facebook account in 2016. In this post, there was an article claiming that Yıldız Technical University was governed by a sect . The article did not belong to Batur, and no comments were made. Ahmet Batur, who was subject to a disciplinary investigation and suspended from school after sharing, was right in the lawsuit he filed in the administrative court , while Yıldız Technical University objected to this decision. In the case that went to the New York District Administrative Court, this time the rectorate was right.
Unanimous decision from the Constitutional Court
Ahmet Batur, a student of Yıldız Technical University at that time, brought the matter to the Constitutional Court. He decided to move it. In the examinations made by the Supreme Court, it was once again stated that the student was right . Because it was decided by the court that Yıldız Technical University intervened excessively, that the sharing place was the student’s private space, and that Ahmet Batur’s freedom of expression was curtailed. The committee also decided to pay the student 5,000 Dollars non-pecuniary damage .
The decision of the Constitutional Court is as follows:
- That the right to education guaranteed in Article 42 of the Constitution HAS BEEN VIOLATION ,
- A copy of the decision is about to be re-trial in order to eliminate the consequences of the violation of the right to education to be sent to the Administrative Court ,
- TO PAY Net 5 thousand Dollars non-pecuniary damage to the applicant ,
