Office of General Prosecutor of Turkey accuses Erdogan of inciting to break laws

PanARMENIAN.Net - On May 4 Office of General Prosecutor of Turkey launched an investigation towards

Prime Minister and leader of the Justice and Development ruling party Recep Tayyip Erdogan. CNN Turk reports the Premier is accused of trying to "to spread fear and panic among the population", "humiliate state judicial bodies" and "incite breach of laws".



Erdogan's negative statements in connection with the decision of the Constitutional Court served as a cause for accusations. The Constitutional Court of the country nullified the first stage of presidential elections. Last Wednesday the Prime Minister called that verdict as a blow to democracy. "The parliamentarian procession of presidential elections was stopped. This decision is a bullet shot towards democracy," the Premier stated.



Erdogan himself turns down accusations and clarifies that it was his reaction to the statement of Deniz Baykal, leader of Republican People's Party, which is in opposition. Baykal said if the first stage of presidential elections is not nullified, the country will be "drawn into conflict and clashes". It also served as a cause for parallel investigation in the Office of General Prosecutor, NEWSru.com reports.
