Turkcell a private and biggest mobile network in Turkey states that they received orders and political pressure from the ruling party AKP and government to block the communications in Istanbul mainly Taksim square which they obeyed as well as the other 2 main networks! Turkcell and other main mobile network operators disabled the service in many other cities as the protests grew.
The information has been exposed by experienced female journalist Ruhat Mengi.
She also said that the CCTV cameras are turned off by the local state on purpose.
Think of a Prime Minister who is ordering a private company to stop the right to communicate which states in human rights and country’s constitution, comes on the bought media TV channels and states in a crying voice tone “They are calling me a dictator, I am a democratic elected minister”.
Is this behavior you expect from your minister or a dictator?
