In a very controversial event, Erdal Eren, 17 years old was executed by raising his age to 18 to make the death penalty applicable. During his military regime Kenan Evren made his infamous comment on executions: "Asmayalım da besleyelim mi?" (Should we feed them rather than hanging them?). Evren took strong measures to ensure that the division between the political left and right would not turn into violence again; the new constitution limited the rights and depoliticized the youth.
