ADD files criminal complaint against Akit TV for insulting Ataturk

Chairmen of the Ataturkist Thought Association (ADD) branches filed criminal complaints against Akit TV, which drew reaction with its broadcast on 77th anniversary of death of Ataturk, in İstanbul on Friday.

“The expression ‘Tyranny ended in 1938′ was used by the Akit TV station while covering news of the 77th anniversary of Ataturk’s death at 9:10 a.m. on Nov. 10, 2015.

A group of Chairmen from the ADD branches, located in European side of İstanbul came together in front of the Bakirkoy Court. Announcing a joint explanation, the spokesman of the group Ali İlhan Gulek stated that the heinous attacks against republic and Ataturk would know no limits. Explaining that the people who were fond of Ataturk, are being attempted to provoke by these broadcasts Gulek, “They will not be able to reach their goals. But they must know that our patience is not limitless,” said in his speech.

Gulek also added by saying, “These heinous attacks peaked at the 77th death anniversary of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Repetition of these attacks especially on Nov. 10 shows that they are taking courage from someone. So-called a member of press, Yeni Akit is excessively known as a partisan of the leading party,” said in his statement.

Following the statement, the group chanted slogans and entered the court building for the denunciation.
