Turkey - a real turkey?

More positive news on the state of our NATO ally in their report card to the UN.

'With rapid deterioration of the human rights situation during the two-year state of emergency that finally ended on 18 July 2018, Turkey has failed to progress with the implementation of many of the recommendations it accepted during its previous Universal Periodic Review. During and since the end of the state of emergency, authorities have continued to crack down on peaceful dissent and maintain a climate of fear through lengthy and punitive pre-trial detention, abusive prosecutions, blanket bans on peaceful assemblies, arbitrary dismissals of public sector workers and closure of civil society organizations and media outlets.'
