"NGOs are meeting in Ankara over 301
Tuesday, January 30, 2007
After Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's call for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to propose how to amend the controversial Article 301 in the Turkish penal code, NGOs are expected to gather in Ankara this week. The Ankara Bar Association called the meeting and invited only professional organizations. The NGOs will discuss an amendment to or the abolishment of Article 301, which has been widely criticized for limiting freedom of speech. The state, on the other hand, seems to be headed toward amending the article, but not before May."
