Turkish police have arrested Sadaf Kabas, a female journalist, for using inappropriate language against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
According to the International News Agency, Turkish police arrested journalist Sadaf Kabas and transferred him to prison. The arrest of the female journalist was carried out on a court order on charges of insulting President Tayyip Erdogan in a TV program and tweet.
The female journalist used a phrase criticizing the government on a TV channel, which she later wrote in her tweet: “When Bell climbs the palace, he does not become king, but the palace becomes a threshing floor.” ‘
In response to Sadaf Kabas’s tweet, the head of Turkey’s communications department said that the honor of the presidency is the pride of our country, and I condemn the baseless remarks made against my president and his office.
Turkish Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul also wrote on Twitter that journalist Sadaf Kabas would get what he deserved for his illegal words.
It should be noted that not paying attention to the memory of President Tayyip Erdogan in speech and writing in Turkey is a felony punishable by up to 4 years in prison.
