Turkey no longer will defend herself in freedom of speech cases

Turkey set to end defenses in freedom of speech cases

 

Under fire for its controversial defense in a high-profile freedom of speech case at the European Court of Human Rights, Turkey will reportedly stop trying to defend itself in such cases and seek friendly settlements instead.

...

. But the foreign minister’s remarks indicated that the country might be considering a change in tactics after its much-criticized European court defense drawing parallels between Neo-Nazism and the perspectives of murdered journalist Hrant Dink.

...

Turkey has some 13,000 cases pending in the European court.

....

The Dink case made headlines earlier this month when Turkey cited in its defense a case against a leader of a Nazi organization in Europe as an example supporting its prosecution of Dink. In an early reaction, Davutoglu expressed regret and said, "As an intellectual and a minister, I could not digest this."

 

Following this defense, Turkey asked for a friendly settlement, but the Dink family did not accept the request.

This is a right decision..

A bit late but right...

Turkey´s defense of handling Hrant Dink case at the European Court of Human Rights was shameful..

haha, it is so funny post.this court is not legal.they judge wrongly everything.. they have to solve european´s problems first...such as Sami troubles in finland, turks in northern greece,turks in bulgaria,gay soldier of thenerdherlands, polish in UK, (), bosnian in the middle EU, Serbs who killed muslims etc...

when the subject is armenian , kurds in Turkey, they feel free to talk... but they dont wanna talk about turks, bosnian in EU. remember these firstly thehandzoom, before posting smtg related Turks.

 quite a bit off topic but i cannot resist)))Poles have full right to be in the UK, hadn´t it been for them the UK would have given up easily as the rest of western Europe did in WWII.

today is another anniversary of this tremendous experience in which Poland was attacked by Germans , Russians, and Slovaks and fought against intruders with honour with NO SUPPORT!!!!

a joke- an advert from the Netherlands and France

You people bore me. As long as their are other countries in the world who make mistakes, Turkey can be the crapiest country around right? (I´m not saying it IS the crapiest, but according to the logic of SOME people here it might as well be) The world has to be perfect, before you can say to Turkey "Hey, what you´re doing over there is not so cool."

The cases against Turkey are not simply brought forward by "Europe". It´s not like "Europe" is pooping on Turkey. You are TOTALLY forgetting that the people who´s rights for free speech are being defended here, are TURKISH citizens. How about stading up for your fellow Turks, instead of ALWAYS attacking Europe? The thought of Turkey, the notion of Turkey as a state is empty, is nothing. It´s the PEOPLE of Turkey who matter, and it is the PEOPLE of Turkey who you should defend.

This is exactly why I have stopped debating these issues.  Many people defend their position by blame throwing...it´s a total waste of time and nothing positive ever comes of it.  I stick to the "fluff" topics now!

BM, I think you´re unaware of what´s important in a nationalistic country It´s not people - it´s the country that´s the ultimate value. If people do what agrees with the state policy - it´s fine. But try questioning, having your own way - bang bang - you´re dead or persecuted and your fellow country men will think it was justified.

He, who´s not with us, is against us
