Turkey's Leader Erdogan Proclaims Freedom of Faith, Thought & Opinion - ALL LIES: So many people are imprisoned for expressing their beliefs in Turkey that its jails are overflowing. The government just announced it will be building 228 more prisons over the next five years.
1-28-19, Gatestone Inst -- At a rally in Ankara, Turkey over the summer, held by the women's branch of Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced:
"From now on, there will be no fight for freedom of faith, freedom of thought and freedom of opinion. Everyone will be free in their own faith [and] be free to live accordingly. [Everyone will be at liberty to] say whatever he [or she] believes in."
Erdogan did not hide the fact that his statements at the August gathering were part of his "preparations for the 2019 local elections," scheduled for March 31, 2020.
The Turkish president did, however, hide the fact that his words were completely false.
Erdoğan was not telling the truth when he declared that everyone in Turkey would enjoy "freedom of faith, freedom of thought and freedom of opinion." In fact, Turkish jails and prisons are so packed with people imprisoned for expressing their beliefs, that the government just announced it will be building 228 more prisons over the next five years to accommodate the overflow.
On December 19, 2018 Prof. Ms Şebnem Korur Fincancı, president of the Human Rights Foundation of Turkey (TIHV), was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for being one of 2,212 signatories to an "Academics for Peace" petition in 2016. The petition called on the Turkish government to cease its violence against the Kurds in southeastern Turkey. Fincancı is one of 429 academics who, as of December 19, 2018 have stood on trial since December 5, 2018. More here
