...very interesting interview, thanks Tim.

...it has been an interesting ride, on this train Erdogan calls Democracy. He indeed is changing along the way, now the belligerent passenger it seems, on his way to a "New Turkey", he is discovering that the train does not make stops whenever it is convenient, nor does it travel in ways he imagined. In the thousands of Lawsuits this man alone, has brought for Judgement, i ask, how many have found a decision in his favour? Indeed, Turkey can only grow stronger with this precedent, if it does not break. Erdogan may well leave a mark on History, a Legacy that will be remembered forever. But, I don't think it will be the Palace, or the Bridges, the Trains, or the Pipelines, it will be the resistance that is building against him, and his ways.

...Hurriyet has had its ups and downs like any paper, so too Zaman, on a personal note, i miss the responses that were possible (in Hurriyet), i understand that anything electronic was erased (of Zaman); it is hard to believe.

I think he abandoned that pretence some time ago.

An application by a lawyer to a first-instance penal court for cancellation on the grounds that it is in breach of the Constitution and European Declaration of Human Rights of the provision in Article 299 of the Penal Code making it an offence to defame the president has been accepted, and the court has decided to take the application to the Constitutional Court.
