"In its first opinion on Turkey after the failed coup d’état on 15 July, the Council of Europe called today (17 October) on restoring the inviolability of members of parliament, which was infringed by an amendment of the constitution introduced last April.
The so-called “Venice Commission” (the European Commission for Democracy through Law) published a 16-page opinion on the constitutional amendment of 12 April 2016."
