Erdogan’s lawyer says he’s acted to get entire poem mocking Erdogan banned

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s lawyer said on Saturday he had filed a complaint in a bid to get a satirical poem mocking his client banned in its entirety after a court issued a preliminary ruling in May banning re-publication of parts.

Comedian Jan Boehmermann recited a poem on television in March suggesting Erdogan engaged in bestiality and watched child pornography.
