Dual citizen found guilty of insulting Big Turk

Ontario woman found guilty of insulting Turkey’s president, released as lawyer appeals case

A Canadian woman detained in Turkey has been found guilty of insulting the country’s president, but said she has been released from prison as her lawyer pursues an appeal of the case.

Ece Heper said she is happy to be out of prison, where she had been held since late December after being charged for comments she wrote about President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on social media.

    I have limited sympathy for someone who goes to a foreign country, particularly a barbaric one, and publicly criticizes their system. Grow up. You aren’t in Kansas any more, honey.

    And its Islamophobia day at the CBC. This afternoon they have a number of stories that ISLAMOPHOBIA IS RUNNING RAMPANT ACROSS CANADA! First, they had an interview with someone who was shocked at the anti muslim rhetoric at the Peel school board meeting, then they had an interview with a woman wearing a bad over her head complaining about islamophobic police, and then they had the heart warming story of muslim youth joining hands with London police to pay respects to the murdered police officer there. However they did have another story that wasn’t about Canada’s official state religion. The CBC was outraged that someone heckled Canada’s favorite prime minister in Winnipeg today. Yes cancel the Amber Alert, Trudeau is on a selfie tour in Manitoba. Maybe he can shake hands with some Somali pirates crossing the border.

    Erdogan is destroying that nation

    • And I think Trudeau is jealous — he’d love to put Canadians in jail who dare to criticize him.
