The Arbitration Committee for Consumer Problems has been established in 931 centres situated in provinces and districts of Turkey. These committees are authorised to decide the settlement of conflicts between consumers and sellers up to a value of 250 Euros. Disputes over 250 Euro are settled either in Consumer Courts established in Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir or in commercial courts acting as Specialized Consumer Courts located in the remaining 78 provinces. If deemed necessary, the number of Specialized Consumer Courts will be increased. Moreover, in Turkey there are 35 consumer organisations. With the aim of raising awareness about current laws and rights, training programmes are being planned for both citizens and organizations.

II- MEASURES FOR HARMONISATION WITH THE EU LEGISLATION AND IMPLEMENTATION
PRIORITY 24.1 Alignment with the EU Acquis and Capacity Building in the Field of Asylum
1-Priority Description
In the 2003 Accession Partnership, harmonization with the EU acquis in the area of asylum was listed as a priority. Under the medium-term priorities of this heading, developing accommodation facilities and social support mechanisms for refugees and asylum seekers and enhancing administrative and technical capacities have been envisaged. Under this heading, following the entry into force of the Draft Law on Asylum, the work on harmonization with the EU acquis will continue and administrative measures will be further developed.
Turkey has signed and ratified the 1951 United Nations Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its Additional Protocol. While being a party to this Convention Turkey declared at the time of its accession a geographical limitation on the definition of the term “refugee”. Despite the limitation on the definition, as a result of humanitarian concerns both for foreigners granted refugee status and for foreigners arriving from regions outside of Europe granted temporary asylum rights, Turkey strictly observes the “non-refoulement” principle of the Article 33 of the Convention. The issue of geographic limitation will be addressed during the progression of EU accession negotiations of Turkey. The geographic limitation will be lifted in the accession process, on the condition that it should not encourage large scale refugee inflows to Turkey from the East, upon the completion of the necessary legislative and infra-structural measures and in line with the sensitivity of the EU Member States on the issue of burden-sharing.
The sub-working groups under the Asylum, Immigration and External Borders Task Force, which consist of experts from relevant public institutions and organizations have adopted national strategy documents/papers on these three topics as a result of their semi-annual meetings, working visits and legislative screening activities. In the framework of strategy papers regarding the EU harmonization process a series of activities on training, restructuring and legislation on the issue of asylum will be undertaken.
There has not been any legislative changes regarding this priority heading.

PRIORITY 24.3. Alignment of the Visa Legislation with the EU Acquis and implementation
1-Priority Description
In order to continue the process of alignment of visa legislation and practice with the acquis, the issues cited below will be given priority:
- Important steps have been taken to align with the EU Visa Negative List. By May 2003, 75% alignment with the said list was achieved. For full alignment, the situation of six countries needs to be reviewed. As a first step, Turkey introduced visa requirements for six Gulf countries (Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates) which the EU subjects to visa requirements, as of September 1st 2002. As a second step, thirteen countries (Indonesia, Republic of South Africa, Kenya, Bahamas, Maldives, Barbados, Seychelles, Jamaica, Belize, Fiji, Mauritius, Grenada and Santa Lucia) have been listed for visa requirements, and these entered into force between May-July 2003.
- The visa stickers currently used in Turkey do not meet the minimum security standards of the EU. Therefore, the use by Turkey of visa stickers with high security measures in alignment with the EU and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is foreseen.
- Current visa types issued by Turkey are not in line with the Schengen visa types valid in EU member states. An incremental alignment process is envisaged in this area.
- Providing technical equipment to Turkish Representations and border control gates to check documents for authenticity and security is important for combating illegal immigration and human trafficking.
- The initiation of the airport transit visa practice will facilitate the addressing of problems caused by persons who are sent back to Turkey after attempting illegal entry to EU member states on flights via Turkish airports.
Issuing visas at borders is not a practice used in the Schengen system. This practice is to be incrementally abolished.*

PRIORITY 24.4 Adoption and Implementation of the EU Acquis and Best Practices on the Fight against Illegal Migration
1-Priority Description
In the 2003 Accession Partnership, reinforcing the fight against illegal immigration, adoption and implementation of the acquis and best practices on migration (admission, readmission, expulsion) with a view to preventing illegal immigration has been listed in the medium term priorities.
The sub-working groups under the Asylum, Immigration and External Borders Task Force, which consist of experts from the relevant public institutions and organizations have adopted national strategy papers on these three topics as a result of their semi-annual meetings, workshops and legislative screening activities. A series of training, reorganization and legislation activities on the issue of asylum will be undertaken in accordance with the strategy papers on the EU harmonization process in the field of immigration.
Turkey has become a member of the Centre for Information Discussion and Exchange on the Crossing of Frontiers and Immigration (CIREFI) in 2001. As of this date, statistical information has been exchanged with the said Centre. Turkey participates in the meetings organized by the Centre every six months. Through the Early Warning System, Turkey shares emergency information with EU members and candidate countries on illegal immigration and stolen documents.
In the context of the fight against illegal immigration Turkey will initiate, in the medium term, the practices on readmission and expulsion in addition to the alignment with the EU legislation required in the pre-accession process. The Turkish Government will continue to sign readmission agreements with neighbouring countries and countries of origin covering Turkish citizens, persons illegally transiting through Turkey, and foreign nationals caught during illegal residence in Turkey. In this vein, Turkey aims to conclude readmission agreements first with its Eastern neighbouring countries, and then with countries East of these countries and finally, with its Western neighbouring countries.
Turkey has offered to conclude readmission agreements with Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Greece, India, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Peoples Republic of China (P.R.C.), Romania, Syria, and Sri Lanka in 2001. In that framework, a Readmission Protocol was signed with Greece on 8 November 2001. In addition, negotiations continue with Bulgaria. Second round negotiations have been concluded and an agreement has been initialled with Romania. In this regard a readmission agreement is expected to be signed soon. There has been no response from India, Iran, Pakistan, Peoples Republic of China (P.R.C.) and Sri Lanka to the Turkish Government’s initiative. Moreover in 2002, readmission agreements were offered to Algeria, Belarus, Egypt, Ethiopia, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Libya, Mongolia, Morocco, Nigeria, Russian Federation, Sudan, Tunisia, and Uzbekistan. From the countries cited above, a Readmission Agreement was signed with Kyrgyzstan on 6 May 2003.

PRIORITY 24.5 Organised Crime, Fraud and Corruption
1-Priority Description
Efforts will continue for the adoption and implementation of the EU acquis on organised crime, fraud, corruption and people smuggling. Administrative capacity and co-operation between different law-enforcement bodies will be enhanced and international cooperation in these fields will be intensified.
Organised Crime
By means of legislative alignment, strengthening of the administrative capacity and cooperation between different law-enforcement bodies in line with the EU standards, the fight against organised crime, drugs, trafficking of human beings will be further improved.
Adoption and implementation of the EU acquis and strengthening of the administrative capacity and co-operation between different line institutions in the fields of fraud, corruption and organised crime will continue and international co-operation in these fields will be improved.
To ensure an effective fight against bribery, corruption, fraud and money laundering, efforts to complete a country-wide real estate database within the Title Deeds and Cadastre Information System (TAKBİS) which is currently being implemented by the Directorate General for Title Deeds and Cadastre (Ministry of Public Works and Settlement) in order to automate the processing of all legal and technical information on immovable property will continue.
In line with this priority;
- Law No. 4800 of 30.01.2003 Approving Ratification of the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime (Palermo Convention)
- Law Approving Ratification of Protocol Against the Smuggling of Migrants By Land, Sea and Air Supplementing The United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime
- Law Approving Ratification of Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, Supplementing The United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime
have entered into force after being published in the Official Gazette: 25014, dated: 4.2.2003.
Fraud and Corruption
Considering that the perpetrators of organised crime related to corruption may be legal persons, the EU acquis has foreseen attribution of criminal liability to legal persons. A significant development in Turkish legislation to this end is the recognition of liability of legal persons within the scope of Article 220 of the Turkish Criminal Code amended by Law No. 4782 Amending Various Laws for the Prevention of Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions. However, in the new draft Turkish Civil Code, there will be a system change regarding all economic crime types, and criminal liability of legal persons will be possible after the adoption of the new code.
Regarding this priority heading;
- Law No. 4852 of 17 April 2003 Approving Ratification of the Convention on Civil Law Against Corruption (Official Gazette: No. 25088, dated: 24 April.2003)

According to the 2003 Accession Partnership, adoption and implementation of the EU acquis, increasing administrative capacity and co-operation between the different law enforcement bodies and intensifying international co-operation in the field of money laundering are considered as short and medium term priorities.
In order to prevent the exploitation of the financial system with the aim of money laundering, alignment with the relevant EU acquis and strengthening of administrative and technical capacity are the main objectives.
Efforts on harmonisation with the 40 recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) will continue.
The Ministry of Finance, Financial Crimes Investigation Board (MASAK) General Communiqué No. 3 was published in the Official Gazette No. 24664 dated 7 February 2002. Accordingly, “Presence of reasonable cause to believe, or to suspect that funds are related or connected to terrorism or terrorist acts or used to this end,” has been added as the 20th transaction type in addition to the previous 19 suspicious transaction types identified to assist those who carry out the obligation to inform on suspicious transactions. Also, with MASAK General Communiqué No. 4, published in the Official Gazette No. 24932 dated 10 November 2002, those so obliged, at the initial stage banks and private finance houses, are required to appoint a harmonization officer at an administrative level in order to make the necessary notifications.
With the Law Amending Various Laws for the Prevention of Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions, active and passive bribery have become predicate offences for money laundering.
Law No 4782 of 2 January 2003 Amending Various Laws for the Prevention of Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions entered into force via publication in the Official Gazette No. 24990 dated 11 January 2003.

PRIORITY 24.8 Police Co-operation and Participation in the Schengen Information System and Europol
1- Priority Description
Adoption of the EU acquis in the field of data protection and exchange of personal data for law enforcement purposes and to build the institutional capacity for its implementation including the formation of an independent supervisory authority so as to be able to fully participate in the Schengen Information System and Europol have been regarded as medium term priorities in the 2003 Accession Partnership. Also, improved administrative capacity, enhanced co-operation between different law-enforcement bodies and intensified international co-operation in these fields are among the short and medium term priorities, as well as the development of sustainable training programmes on the EU acquis and its implementation in the field of Justice and Home Affairs.
To continue improving criminal investigation techniques, especially in the area of forensic research is a main subject of collaboration between Turkey and the EU under the priority heading of Police Co-operation.
Participation in Europol and Schengen Information System within the Framework of Police Co-operation
Following the entry into force of the Law on Personal Data Protection, necessary administrative measures relevant to the Schengen Information System will start to be implemented along with continuing efforts to align with the EU acquis in this field. Work can be launched on the communication infrastructure of the Schengen Information System Network (SISNET) within the Ministry of Interior, Directorate General for Public Security, after Turkey’s adoption of the Schengen Acquis. The administrative capacity will be increased by establishing a unitary centre within a single structure comprising the Europol and Schengen Contact Points (Centres) and the Interpol Centre enabling a more effective and productive work environment for co-operation and coordination between all law-enforcement units which will take part in this centre. In addition, by establishing Europol and Schengen Contact Points (Centres), public awareness raising on this issue will be ensured, and effective co-operation in the fight against international crime and criminals will be instituted by preparing guidelines and training programs.
Improvement of Criminal Investigations within the Framework of Police Co-operation
In this field, the priority areas are development and completion of the necessary implementation capacity on the topics of exchange of DNA analysis results, voice-image data analysis and interrogation techniques.

PRIORITY 24. 9 Alignment with the EU Acquis on Personal Data Protection
1- Priority Description
Adoption and implementation of the EU Acquis on protection and exchange of personal data is regarded as a priority area in the 2003 Accession Partnership along with the creation of the necessary institutional capacity, including the founding of an independent supervisory authority.
Alignment with the personal data protection EU acquis is one of the short term priorities in the Ability to Assume the Obligations of Membership chapter of the 2003 Accession Partnership published by the European Commission, especially under the titles of “Justice and Home Affairs” and “Freedom to Provide Services”. The effective implementation of legislation on personal data protection is also a medium term priority.
Preparations for the draft law for harmonisation are at the final stage. The preparations are supported by European Union and Council of Europe experts on this draft law in the context of the Sub-Committee for Support to the Legal Reforms within the framework of the ongoing Council of Europe - European Union - Turkey Joint Projects.
With the draft law, where all personal data on an identified or identifiable individual is undergoing automatic processing, the following issues will be regulated; respect for and protection of rights and fundamental freedoms, in particular the right to privacy; ensuring that the data stored is obtained and processed fairly and lawfully, for specified and legitimate purposes and not used in a way incompatible with those purposes, is adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purposes for which it is stored, is accurate and up-to-date, and where necessary corrected or erased; safeguarding personal data revealing racial origin, political opinions or religious or other beliefs, as well as personal data concerning health or sexual life; recognition of the right to be informed on and access to one’s own personal data.

PRIORITY 24. 10 Adoption and Implementation of the EU Acquis in the Fields of the Criminal Law Protection of the Euro and of the Community's Financial Interests
1- Priority Description
This area was regarded as a priority in the 2003 Accession Partnership and 2002 Regular Report on Turkey. There are no discrepancies between the relevant EU acquis and Turkish legislation when analysed comparatively, except the one legislation cited in the table below.
All acts to be considered as crimes within the May 29th 2000 Council Framework Decision on increasing protection against counterfeiting by penal sanctions in connection with the introduction of the Euro are regulated in articles No. 316-324 and penalties prescribed for these crimes are within the limits foreseen by the relevant EU legislation.
Since January 1937, Turkey has been a party to the International Convention for the Suppression of Counterfeiting Currency, dated 20th April 1929, which has been taken as the basis for the EU acquis in this field.
In addition, all acts that are foreseen to be punished by the Convention on the protection of the European Communities' financial interests dated 27th November, 1995 and its 2 protocols are regulated under Articles No. 202, 211-219, 504, 510 of the Turkish Civil Code and the legal values to be protected by these crime types are safeguarded by the implementation of the Turkish Civil Code.
The above-mentioned EU acquis envisages that fraud, bribery1) and forgery in documentation should be predicate offences within the money laundering legislation. These offences are already considered as predicate offences within the scope of Law No. 4208.
As explained above, to implement Turkish Legislation which is almost compatible with relevant EU Legislation in a more efficient way, the possibility of increasing the relative importance of the above mentioned subject in the training programme for judiciary personnel will be evaluated.
Within the context of this priority, Law No. 4782 of 2 January 2003 Amending Various Laws for the Prevention of Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions entered into force after being published in the Official Journal No. 24990 dated 11 January 2003.

PRIORITY 24.11 Adoption and Implementation of the EU Acquis on Judicial Cooperation in the Field of Criminal Law
1- Priority Description
Trafficking in human beings and the sexual exploitation of children are recognised as serious violations of fundamental human rights. The sexual exploitation of children and production and marketing of materials having child pornography content constitute one aspect of organised crime. In particular, widespread use of the Internet has given rise to the commercial transmission of materials based on the sexual exploitation of children. In addition, trafficking in human beings, exploitation of children for forced prostitution are among important sources of income for international criminal organisations.
Combating the sexual abuse and exploitation of children by criminal organisations is one of the constitutional duties of the State. In particular, effective measures should be taken against criminal organizations who abuse and exploit minors who have not reached sexual maturity and are unable to afford self protection.
Combating transnational organised crime in line with the provisions of the Convention on the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms requires the effective protection of people (witnesses) endangering themselves, or people in close relation with them, when supplying information about organized crime to the competent authorities.
In this context, Article 7 of Law No. 4422 on Combating Organizations Pursuing Illicit Gain and Article 20 of the Law on Combating Terrorism are required to be reviewed according to the Council Resolution of 1995, and witness protection measures should also include witnesses’ close relatives (parents and the children).
In addition, the relevant legislation of the European Union which has been in the process of continuous development will be pursued closely, cooperation possibilities with the European Union will be explored, and preparatory work will be realised with regard to following subjects: Mutual legal assistance in criminal matters, simplified and facilitated extradition, combating cyber crime and high-tech crime, protection of the victims in criminal proceedings and the rights of the victims of crime, determination of the minimum common elements of crimes of terrorism, criminal organisations and drug trafficking and their punishment, mutual recognition and enforcement of decisions on search, seizure and confiscation, disqualification of driving licences, taking extra judicial evidence, mutual recognition and enforcement of fines given by judicial authorities, combating racism and xenophobia, the European Judicial Network, the European Judicial Training Network, and serious environmental crimes.
Under this priority heading, Article 201 of the Turkish Penal Code has been amended by Law No. 4771 of 3 August 2002 Amending Various Laws (Official Gazette 9 August 2002 No. 24841) In addition, Law No. 4804 of 30 January 2003 Approving Ratification of Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, Supplementing the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organised Crime was published in the Official Gazette No. 25014 dated 4 February 2003.
