The Batman Administrative Court decided about a counter claim that Ilisu Dam should be built because Turkey will nationally benefit from its energy production and irrigation facilities. On the desicion, the court accepted that the project has not cared about cultural historical heritage till now but after this moment, it “will” care!
This desicion is not the end of juridical process because the case will be conveyed the higher court by advocates. However, this desicion also show the juridical process in Turkey about environment issue: the courts always tend to decide parallel with the government!
