TRNC to introduce a law that makes criticizing the president, a crime

It will soon become a crime to criticize and disrespect the president of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus after a draft Penal Amendment Law was drawn up by the UBP-DP-YDP coalition government.

The draft Penal Amendment Law which includes the criminalisation of “being critical and hostile towards the President”, has been sent to the Assembly for approval.

Speaking on the amendment, TRNC Bar Association President, Hasan Esendağlı said that those who had prepared the bill were fascist and reactionary.

While we are waiting for all articles that penalise thought and expression to be cleared from the law, look at the bill sent to the TRNC Assembly in May 2022! It is fascist, reactionary, and cowardly!,” he said.
