    The new Turkish judge of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) will officially take her office on Monday after being sworn in.

    The oath-taking ceremony will be held at 18:30 GMT with the participation of ECHR President Jean-Paul Costa.

    At its meeting in January, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), selected Prof. Dr. Isil Karakas of the Galatasaray University as the new judge of Turkey at the Court.

    She received 136 of the 185 votes. Karakas will take over from Riza Turmen, who held the position since 1998, and will be the first female judge from Turkey at the ECHR.

    Karakas, a lecturer at Galatasaray University in Istanbul who has worked on European Union law and International Human Rights law, will remain in office for the next six years.
