Be careful what you say
« on: July 06, 2018, 13:45:52 PM »
We've all known for some time that the current government have done their best to stifle any dissenting voices within the media, online, on TV and in print.  Now it appears that simply repeating what mainstream news organisations outside of Turkey are broadcasting is enough to earn you up to seven and a half years in prison.

Any chance of a fair trial disappeared the other week and it'll take a brave lawyer (other than a court appointed lawyer) to stand up for this young girl.
