...it just doesn't stop:

Rezan Zuğurli, who was elected as co-mayor of Diyarbakır’s Lice district from the Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) a month ago, was sentenced to over four years in prison May 7 for participating in three rallies in 2010 and 2011.

The 25-year-old student became Turkey’s youngest ever mayor after winning the March 30 elections with fellow co-mayoral candidate Harun Erkuş with a record 91 percent of the votes.

The Diyarbakır 2nd High Criminal Court found Zuğurli guilty on charges of committing crimes “on behalf of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK)” even while admitting that she was not a member of the group.

Prosecutors were demanding up to 35 years in prison, although the court ultimately sentenced her to four years and two months in jail.

The Chair of the Turkish Bar Association upset the volatile PM Erdogan during a speech.

Pres Gul can be seen trying to calm Mr Erdogan, going to the extent of squeezing his hand, but it wasn't enough to stop the PM losing it and storming out of the meeting.

This is part of Hurriyet's account of PM Erdogan's walkout......

"... right after the speech of Danıştay Chairwoman Zerrin Güngör, Metin Feyzioğlu took the floor for the TBB. He is a young professor of law with unhidden ambitions for the social democratic opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP).

It is true that his speech was longer than expected. What was not expected was Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan’s outburst in the 55th minute (as Feyzioğlu was wrapping it up) from his seat next to President Abdullah Gül in the front row.

Erdoğan interrupted Feyzioğlu’s sentence as he was expressing his hopes that presidential elections in August would produce a president who can embrace all of the population.

“Don’t be rude,” Erdoğan said, raising his voice. “I’m not being rude,” Feyzioğlu replied. “Mr. Prime Minister, I am not doing anything rude. There is nothing rude in my speech.”

Erdoğan stood up, “You are giving political messages.” Feyzioğlu replied. “There are no political messages in my speech; it is a constructive one.”

Erdoğan, taking two steps toward the podium, repeated with hand gestures, reminding many of his “one minute” reaction against Israeli President Shimon Peres in 2009 in Davos: “Don’t be rude. Plus, what you have said about the Van earthquake is a lie.” Feyzioğlu, keeping his – now artificial – smile on his face, replies: “I don’t find it proper for myself to call anybody rude.”

By this time, Gül, Güngör and Chief of General Staff Necdet Özel have all stood up. Gül tries to hold the arm of his long-time fellow Erdoğan and calm him down.

Of course, Gül was in additional difficulty. According to protocol, the president enters the room the latest and leaves first. Gül understood that Erdoğan was about to leave, violating protocol and presidential reputation, and tried in vain to stop him.

But Erdoğan turns to Gül and Özel, showing his watch and saying: “Chairwoman Güngör talked for 25 minutes, but the man has been talking for an hour now.” Gül once again tries to bring him back, but Erdoğan makes a gesture to Gül, indicating, “Let’s go together,” and Gül, Özel and Güngör follow him out, as Feyzioğlu remains at the rostrum, waiting to complete his remarks. ..."

...never mind Turkey, Turkey is no more.

Erdogan is Turkey, Erdogan is the State.

...nothing beyond his center, he is the only, "one";

the words, criminal psychopath, come to mind...

"let's go together", he says,

...it's how he plays the rules, not whether they are broken or not.

"There are those who are disturbed by our children being taught Ottoman," Erdogan declared. "Whether they want it or not, Ottoman will be learned and be taught."

Government-allied educators say Turkey is returning to its cultural roots.

"In Turkey, the education that was offered was one that was directly opposed to the people's own culture (and) own civilization," said Ali Yalcin, deputy head of the pro-government Egitim Bir-Sen teachers' union, which proposed many of the recommendations.

The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the mandatory religion classes are an affront to Alevi students' religious freedoms. The government insists that the course teaches general knowledge about all faiths — a claim dismissed by critics who say that Sunni teachings still dominate the syllabus.

Critics say that while the government is focused on entrenching religion in schools, it has been ignoring the Turkish education system's serious failings. According to a 2012 Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development report, Turkish students fared poorly in reading, mathematics and science, ranking 44th out of 65 countries.

"The real problems, in the meantime, are being brushed aside," Yilmaz said. "We still have classes of 50-60 students. There are schools that have no labs, libraries or sports halls."

The report on ABHABER website says that instead of encouraging Turkey on the EU path, the draft report strongly criticises Ankara and it is being underlined that this new strategy will leave Ankara in a difficult position.

It is also being speculated that the UK and Scandinavian countries are making initiatives in the EP to bring the Direct Trade Regulation to the table whilst the GC side is leaning towards China and Moscow.

EP observers who spoke to ABHABER believe this year’s EP Turkey report will be very strong against Turkey.

This thread belongs in a Turkish forum.
Not in a Cypriot one.
Cheers.
