Turkish court considers threats against Armenian “freedom of speech”

Turkish court considers threats against Armenian “freedom of speech”July 20, 2012 | 13:14

ANKARA. – Another funny verdict cast by the Turkish court surprised even the local media.

Head of the Union for the Protection of Animal Rights in Turkey Anna Eva Aksoy [of Armenian descent] back in 2009 turned to the court complaining that the former head of the Union Mehmet Ali Ozarikci had voiced threats against her for many years, Turkish Haberturk reports.

She stated that Ozarikci has been threatening and insulting her for 8 years claiming that ‘his country [Turkey] is too narrow for Anna,’ or calls Anna ‘to go to Yerevan,’ considers her ‘an Armenia spy.’

The Prosecution instigated a case against Ozarikci for insult and threat, however, the court cast a verdict saying his statements are within the freedom of speech.
