Turkey seeks prison for TV presenter over tweet

A local news agency says Turkish prosecutors are seeking up to five years in prison for a former television presenter who was detained last month for posting a tweet suggesting a cover-up in a government corruption scandal.

Private Dogan news agency reported Friday that Sedef Kabas was charged with “targeting public servants tasked with fighting against terrorism.”

    The current Turkish government is illegitimate and corrupt.
    It must pervert it’s own “justice system” (as if those words have any meaning to the Erdogan government) to cover up its own corruption and lawlessness.

    She’s too subversive to risk allowing her to stay in the country.

    Good news. Anything they can do to help accelerate the direction of their own country back to the Dark Ages is to be supported. Erdogan is a Nazi dictator who will push his own country into a genocidal war that ultimately consumes Turkey in fire.
