The Constitutional Court (AYM) has rejected 70,771 applications regarding actions taken directly through statutory decrees and administrative actions taken under the State of Emergency as these were only individual applications submitted without prior application to the Commission on Examination of the State of Emergency Procedures and domestic remedies were not exhausted.
The Court reminded that applications which directly relate to the procedures in statutory decrees issued under the State of Emergency would not be referred to the Commission.
The Court has also underlined that applications regarding statutory decrees, which entered into force before the Commission began to receive applications, could be submitted to the Commission within 60 days after it has begun receiving applications while applications regarding statutory decrees which entered in force after the Commission began receiving applications, could be submitted to the Commission within 60 days after the statutory decree was published on the Official Gazette.
