Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office launched an investigation against CHP Diyarbakır MP Sezgin Tanrıkulu on charges of “denigrating the state” (Article 301 of the Turkish Penal Code) and “inciting the public to hatred and hostility” following his speech on a TV channel. “Everything the TSK does is not free from criticism. Wasn’t it the TSK that staged a coup on 12 September? Isn’t it the same army that attempted a coup on 15 July and burned villages… There are cases I have followed. Isn’t it the TSK that threw 15 villagers out of helicopters… The ECHR judgement is there… Roboski has just become Uludere… “, a lynch campaign was launched against Tanrıkulu and President Erdoğan targeted the MP and said, “He will not go unpunished”.
