Turkish PM advises caution on what is shared on social media

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim has warned all citizens to be careful about what they post on social media.

Yildirim announced that the Turkish Parliament will vote to extend the state of emergency for a further three months.

I request of our citizens and youth to not share posts which could constitute a crime and they should be wary of  being used as a tool of terrorist organisations,” he said.

Our Parliament will discuss and vote for the prolongation of the state of emergency this week,” Yildirim told his parliamentary group on Tuesday.

Turkey declared a state of emergency on 20th July, 2016 after the deadly failed coup attempt. The upcoming Parliament vote will be for the third term of the state of emergency.
