U.S. voices concerns over Turkey's internet law

(Trend News Agency (Azerbaijan) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The U.S. State Department has voiced its concern over Turkey's recently ratified internet law Anadolu Agency reported.

"We are looking to Turkey during this process to uphold the fundamental freedoms that really underscore why we're concerned about this legislation," State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf said.

Turkish President Abdullah Gul ratified the internet bill on Tuesday, while requesting two additional amendments to the legislation. The bill allows Turkey's National Telecommunications Authority (TIB) to block access to certain parts of websites without prior court approval. The Turkish opposition has lashed out at the legislation saying that it is an attempt to censor the Internet.


Harf added that the legislation has the potential to harm Turkey's economic future.

"We also believe that the law could negatively impact Turkey's business and investment climate." ??????????????? ? ??? ? Twitter @www_Trend_Az
