In its judgement dated November 20, it was emphasized that the detention of Demirtaş "pursued the predominant ulterior purpose of stifling pluralism and limiting the freedom of political debate".

The court also underlined that "any continuation of the applicant's pre-trial detention" will entail a prolongation of the stated violations and "a breach of the obligations on Turkey to abide by the Court's judgment in accordance with Article 46 § 1 of the Convention."
