Quoting Trudy

Googled it: it´s from Thenewanatolian, a Turkish newspaper. Article is from June 2008 and not completely quoted in the first post.

 

Thanks Trudy.  So it is from a Turkish newspaper (who have not checked their facts very well!) and is criticising it´s own government?

 

As there is not a single post which supports the title of the thread, I can´t really see what the problem is...

 Once again TheAenigma you and Trudy are completely missing the point I was making. The original post was singling out Turkey. Why say Turkey is unfit for EU membership because of phone tapping when it is rife across the rest of Europe? The fact it was an article from a Turkish newspaper only goes to show the freedom the press in Turkey have to be highly critical of there own authorities.

 Ask it the Turkish writer of this article. He probably knows why he singled Turkey out.

 Perhaps you completely missed DK´s point too when she pointed out that this is, after all, a website about Turkey and therefore Turkish news and articles are often discussed here

If your gripe is with Roswitha for posting it, perhaps you should take that up with her.

 

The comment about Turkey being "unfit" for EU membership was part of the article (as far as i am aware)

Fifty-thousand phones tapped via court decree

   
The debates on telephone tapping, which surfaced as a result of Constitutional Court Chairman Osman Paksüt and CHP General Secretary Önder Sav claiming their telephone calls were being listened in on, in addition to the request made by the Chairman of the police department Chief Ramazan Akyürek have gained a new dimension with the claims that all communication lines in Turkey are in actuality tapped.

The police department stated: "we do listen in on some telephones but not on all of the people in Turkey. Fifty thousand phone lines are being tapped, allowed by a court decree, in Turkey. Seventy million telephones are being monitored. The court extends the duration period of phone tapping for a period of three months at the most, however this duration can be extended and all recording are kept on record, thereby allowing courts to make retrospective decisions. Therefore, telephones are being monitored continuously and live."

It would have been helpful if Roswitha had disclosed the source of the article, even catwoman in the second post thought she was making mischief and congratulated her on the article and found it highly amusing.{#lang_emotions_confused} I still say it should not be a barrier against Turkey´s entry into Europe.

2. Catwoman, disclose the second post
