An update on the “Twitter Trial”


In a blog posted earlier today, Amnesty International’s Turkey researcher, Andrew Gardner gave an update on the “Twitter Trial” in Izmir.

He writes, in part:

The fact this travesty continues says a lot about the sorry state of freedom of expression in Turkey, and the authorities’ extreme intolerance of dissenting opinions. Very few positives came out of the hearing. The court decided that the Prime Minister, who is listed as a “victim” in the case, has the right to intervene as an injured party. However, it decided that he should not be called on to provide a statement to the court.
