Turkey Hearing Wikipedia Appeal
Posted on 2019-09-11 19:12:13
Turkey's highest court is scheduled to consider an appeal by Wikipedia aiming
to reverse the Turkish government's more than two-year ban on the online
encyclopedia.

Turkey blocked Wikipedia in April 2017, accusing it of being part of a
``smear campaign'' against Turkey, after the website refused to remove
content that allegedly portrayed Turkey as a country supporting the Islamic
State group and terrorist organizations.

Access to Wikipedia and all its language editions was blocked under a law
that allows the government to ban websites it deems pose a national security
threat.

Wikipedia declined to remove content from the community-generated site,
citing its opposition to censorship.

It petitioned the Turkish Constitutional Court in May 2017 after talks with
Turkish officials and a challenge in lower courts failed.

Wikipedia is also appealing the ban at the European Court of Human Rights.

Turkey's Constitutional Court is scheduled to start discussing whether the
government's blanket blocking order on Wikipedia violates freedom of
expression.
