A lawsuit was filed against four students, who were arrested due to holding a banner depicting the cartoon, “World of Tayyips,” during the graduation ceremony at the Middle East Technical University (METU), as well as against the copy shop owner due to ‘insulting the President.’

 

Accepting the indictment prepared by Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office, Ankara 11th Criminal Court of First Instance issued the four students to remain arrested. The indictment claimed imprisonment sentences against the students for up to four years each, topped with a one-sixth penalty increase due to the offense having been publicly committed.
