    INQUIRY AUTHORITY AND IMMUNITY''
    ANKARA, Sept 7 (A.A) - Justice Minister Hikmet Sami Turk said on Thursday that he is in favor of restructing parliamentary inquiry authority and immunity.

    Supreme Court Chief Justice Sami Selcuk hosted a reception marking the beginning of the new judicial year at the State Guest House.

    Prime Minister Bulent Ecevit, Acting Parliament Speaker Murat Sokmenoglu, state ministers Faruk Bal, Edip Safder Gaydali, Mehmet Kececiler, Recep Onal, Nejat Arserven, Justice Minister Hikmet Sami Turk, Finance Minister Sumer Oral, Forestry Minister Nami Cagan, Felicity Party (SP) leader Recai Kutan, Justice and Development Party (AK) leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan were among the guests.

    Justice Minister Hikmet Sami Turk, who responded to the question of reporters at the reception if he shared the view of Selcuk to give High Tribunal's authority to Supreme Court of Appeals, said, ''it has been discussed for a long time. I don't think it will last long. I think the proposal is not meaningless.''

    When asked if Aysegul Tecimer, the smuggler of historical works, could benefit from the law on conditional release, Turk said, ''Tecimer had been sentenced from Article 512 of the Turkish Penal Code. This is within the scope of the Law regarded with Conditional Release and Suspension of Punishments. Tecimer had not applied to benefit from the law. However, the Constitutional Court annuled this arrangement in question. I mean, Aysegul Tecimer could benefit from this according to a new arrangement.''

    Responding to a question which said what the public prosecutors should do if they have an evidence about the ministers in an investigation, Turk said, ''allegations against the ministers are brought to the agenda of the parliament as a parliamentary investigation from at least 55 parliamentarians. Parliamentary Investigation Commission is set up against the prime minister and ministers if necessary. This is not included within the scope of the assignment of the prosecutors. The prosecutors don't have such an authority before the investigation commission is set up.''

    Responding to a question about the same issue, Turk asked the prosecutors to send the evidence regarding ministers to the parliament in an investigation.

    Turk said that he is in favour of the restructring parliamentary inquiry authority and immunity.

    Asked about his views regarding closure of a political party, Turk said, ''closing a political party means ending its existence. Political parties are indispensable elements of multi-party regime in accordance with our Constitution. To this end, it is right to make closure of political parties difficult. The constitutional amendment bill consisted of 37 articles foresees providing three-fifth majority. That is, seven members will give a decision rather than six. This majority was provided in the closure case of the Virtue Party (FP).

    Turk added, ''the Constitutional Court annuled the definitions of being a focus which was mentioned in Political Parties Law during the closure of the Welfare and Virtue parties (RP and FP). This decision was not an appropriate one. Now, it is necessary to define ''being a focus'' directly in the Constitution to remove the uncertainty. If this is defined, the political parties regime will be more secured. This issue also takes place in the constitutional amendment bill.''

    When a reporter reminded him that there are criticisms that there is a delay in constitutional amendment bill, Turk said, ''there was a delay because the FP did not think the amendment package which had earlier been brought to the agenda was not sufficient. If they had been contented with the definition of 'being a focus' those days, this amendment would have been passed. However, they asked for the broadening of the package.''

    Turk added, ''then, we could not reach a compromise. If they had been contented with the definition of 'being a focus' those days, the FP might not have been closed. As the Constitutional Court cancelled the definition of 'being a focus', at what point the conflict occured was revealed. However, the FP could not make use of this efficiently those days.''

    Meanwhile, AK Party leader Erdogan said that they extend unconditional support to the constitutional amendment bill.

    [02] IMF DELEGATION STARTS CONTACTS IN TREASURY

    [07] ANKARA BAR HARSHLY REACTS EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT'S CYPRUS REPORT

    -''YOU CAN'T HAVE TURKISH PEOPLE ACCEPT THIS''
    ANKARA - Ankara Bar harshly reacted to the decision of the European Parliament about Cyprus.

    Releasing a statement on Friday, Ankara Bar said that it had assessed the European Parliament's ''Cyprus Report''.

    ''It is now time to make Turkey whose economy was destroyed accept an imposed solution regarding Cyprus issue while it is being forced to give in regarding Cyprus and Northern Iraq,'' said the statement, ''The European Parliament has given start for a political assault against Turkey with the 'Armenian genocide' decision it took last year, and now the decision it took about Cyprus shows that the attacks against Turkey continue,'' it said.

    ''With this decision, the European Parliament declares Turkey as 'invader' in Cyprus. It accepts the Greek Cypriot administration as the only representative of whole Cyprus and considers that it is ready for European Union. However, in accordance with the Zurich and London agreements which brought Independent Cyprus State into being and in accordance with the 'Guarantee Agreement' among Turkey, Greece and Britain, it is impossible for Cyprus to be a member of an international union or organization to which Turkey and Greece are not members simultaneously. Separating Cyprus from Turkey through EU membership is a clear violation of this agreement,'' it said.

    ''The plan is very clear: The Greek Cypriot administration's membership application will be accepted in near future and whole Cyprus will be declared as EU territory while Turkey will be brought to a position of invader of EU territories, and the Turkish Armed Forces will be asked to withdraw from the island immediately,'' it said.

    Recalling that the EP has even determined its sanction against a refusal by Turkey; that is, integration with the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus will cause the refusal of Turkey's EU membership, the statement said, ''in spite of this, those who are very enthusiastic to see their hopes in the EU are in great awareness if not in betrayal.''

    Recalling that 125 years ago, the Ottoman State had given up its sovereignty right over Cyprus which had continued for more than 300 years and hired the island to imperialists in return for 92 thousand gold coins a year, it said, ''today, Cyprus is being sold totally in accordance with similar reasons.''

    Stressing that ''a Turkey which gave up Cyprus can't protect and defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity,'' it said, ''the inevitable outcome of this, will be acceptance of the imposed solution also on Northern Iraq. We are warning: You can't have the Turkish people accept this. We reiterate our statement which we made after European Parliament's 'Armenian genocide' decision: 'Then, a new world is formed and Turkey takes its place here.''
