    A committee is to be set up by the European Parliament to observe the trial of the renowned Turkish writer, Orhan Pamuk. The proposal was made by MPs, who are members of the European wing of the Joint Parliamentary Commission, the consultative organ between the European Parliament and the Turkish parliament. The committee to be formed by European MPs will observe Pamuk's trial and put forward its views to the European Parliament in a report.

    Pamuk is accused of denigrating Turkey and Turkish people as he said in an interview with a Swiss journalist that 1 million Armenians and 30 thousand Kurds were killed. If convicted, Pamuk can face 6 months up to 3 years in prison.

    The trial will start at the Basic Criminal Court no: 2 in Istanbul on December 16, 2005.
