Turkey To Ease Curbs On Free Speech
EU criticized the law as too strongby UPI NewsTrackANKARA, TURKEY -- (UPI and OfficialWire) -- 11/09/07 --

The Turkish government says it will change a controversial law used to prosecute anyone who denigrates Turkish identity. Article 301 of Turkey's penal code has been a stumbling bloc to the country's efforts to join the European Union, the New Anatolian newspaper said Thursday. Intellectuals and writers, such as Nobel Prize-winning author Orhan Pamuk, have been prosecuted under the law. The government's announcement of the change came hours after the EU criticized the law as too strong a curb on free speech. "It is not acceptable that writers, journalists, academics and other intellectuals ... are prosecuted for simply expressing a critical but completely nonviolent opinion," EU Enlargement Commissioner Olli Rehn said. "The infamous Article 301 must be repealed or amended without delay."
