0

ANKARA: Turkish MPs on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) adopted a new Internet legislation roundly criticized as a fresh assault by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on freedom of expression, access to information and investigative journalism. The bill extends what are already hefty Internet curbs in place under a controversial 2007 law that earned Turkey equal ranking with China as the world’s biggest web censor according to a Google transparency report published in December.
