General principles of law have been a matter of substantial legal discussion especially with regards to applicability and function as a source of law in different fields of law. The Turkish Competition Board recognises general principles of law as a source of competition law in its investigations and in various other matters that come before it. In this article, we will particularly focus on ne bis in idem and attorney client privilege and use these two principles as starting points for extrapolating to what extent general principles of law are applied as a source under Turkish competition law regime.
