The maximum period of detention in Turkish law is regulated under Article 102 of the Penal Procedure Code. These periods apply to the whole penal procedure process. In the decisions of the Court of Cassation and the Constitutional Court on detention issues, they subdivide the detention. "Detention on accusation" refers to the detention that is given during the investigation and first instance period. Detention on remand refers to the detention that is given upon appeal and during the cassation period.
