    The Imam’s Army

    by Dusun-Think

    Dear ‘Freedom of Expression’ advocates, As you know, houses and offices have been raided and searched for Ahmet Şık’s yet to be published book ‘İmamın Ordusu’ by the prosecutor and the originals were deleted from the computers after copies were made. Prosecution declared this not a book but an “organisational document” and that who are in possession will be prosecuted unless they are surrendered and upon which a petition signed by tens of thousands have denounced themselves saying “I too have a copy”. Now we have taken one more step. The content of the book is published via internet. Here is another more effective “civil disobedience” opportunity! I am being civilly disobedient by sending the below text to the e-mail address of Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor Turan Colakkadı. Furthermore by inviting you all to do the same I am committing another offence and suggesting you repeat this as well.
