We Condemn the Attack on Journalist Ilhan Tahsin’s Vehicle 25.02.2017-12:54
Birlik newspaper owner and Editor Ilhan Tahsin, who makes important contributions to Western Thrace Muslim Turkish Minority receiving news, had his parked vehicle burnt by unidentified person(s) on 15th February 2017.
We strongly condemn this nefarious attack, which we believe is aimed at silencing the Birlik newspaper and restricting the freedom of our minority to receive news.
The increasing pressure on the Western Thrace Muslim Turkish Minority in recent times is to silence, intimidate and frighten minority people. These futile assaults will never stop this righteous struggle of the minority. It is essential that such attacks are urgently precluded so not to harm and disturb the peace between cultures and the peace of our society. As the FEP Party, we wish that light is shed on this attack and the offenders are brought to justice as soon as possible.
