Refah Partisi (The Welfare Party) and Others v Turkey, 13 February 2003 [ECtHR]

Case nos 41340/98, 41342/98, 41343/98 and 41344/98

115. ... The Court accepts the Turkish Constitutional Court’s conclusion on this point to the effect that Refah had decided to expel those responsible for the acts and speeches concerned in the hope of avoiding dissolution and that the decision was not made freely, as the decisions of leaders of associations should be if they are to be recognised under Article 11 (see, mutatis mutandis, Freedom and Democracy Party (ÖZDEP), cited above, § 26).
