Turkish journalist İsmail Arı, from the daily BirGün, on Sept. 19 announced that Turkish prosecutors have rejected his criminal complaint regarding the death threats he has been receiving.
In a tweet, Arı said “People, most of whom are members of the Menzil cult, threaten me with death and curse me. All the complaints I file are rejected by prosecutors. The reason was, ‘It is not clear who (the threats are) aimed at!’.”
“Under the AKP government, the judiciary works only for AKP members. Would this happen if these threats and curses were made against an AKP member or a pro-government journalist? If something happens to me, the prosecutors and the Justice Ministry will be responsible for ignoring my complaints!,” Arı added.
Büyük kısmı Menzil Cemaati mensubu olan şahıslar beni ölümle tehdit edip küfürler yağdırıyor. Bunlara dair yaptığım tüm şikâyetler ise savcılar tarafından reddediliyor. Gerekçe, “Kime yönelik olduğunun belli olmamasıymış!”— İsmail Arı (@ismailari_) September 19, 2023
AKP iktidarında yargı yalnızca AKP’liler için…
Arı also shared the screenshots of the posts and private messages containing threats and insults made against him.
