Turkish justice

Looks like we will be stuck with Ilhan Cavcav for a while yet after a court in Ankara refused to cancel last season's general congress where Cavcav signed up some 5,000 Galatasaray supporters just a week before the election for the chairman's position.

The Anatolia news agency doesn't go into much detail, my guess is that the judges reasonings for the decision won't be out for a while yet, but they refused the application made by Atilla Aytek, the man who challenged Cavcav, to have the congress results cancelled on the basis that Cavcav had illegally signed up so many people.

Depressing days.
