Source: The Left”THE LEFT welcomes the – albeit late – acquittal of Intellectual Osman Kavala and eight other civil rights activists in the so-called Gezi process in Istanbul. The ruling is a slap in the face for the Turkish President Erdogan,“ says Sevim Dagdelen, external expert of the group of THE LEFT, and a member of the foreign Affairs Committee. Dagdelen further:”The surprising acquittal of Osman Kavala for lack of Evidence after two years on remand in a high security prison in Silivri is a Testament to the arbitrary rule of the autocrat Erdogan is not Turkey, nor to the rule of law. At the same time, the Turkish government intensified the repression against the few remaining critical media, such as Newspapers ,Evrensel and Birgün’. With the withdrawal of press cards for 17 of the editors of ‘Evrensel’, including editor-in-chief Fatih Polat, should be forced by the newspaper, quite obviously, to Set your work. The Federal government is not allowed to access the economically battered Regime of Erdogan is no longer financially and militarily under the arms. THE LEFT calls for the approval and delivery of stop arms exports to Turkey and an end to the Hermes guarantees.“
