Currently under this AKP government there is no democracy in Turkey. There are over a thousand (about 2000) political prisoners in Silivri jail. Among them 26 journalist icluding Mustafa balbay and Tuncay Ozkan. Once very important medical doctor, Professor Haberal the pioneer of organ transplants in Turkey, a man who has performed hundreds of kidney transplants saving lives. None of them have been charged with anything yet and they have been detained for ovger 1 year. PM Erdogan sued cartoonists - one depicting him as a cat - and received compensation in one case 30 thousand YTL. Columnists opposing him such as Bekir Coskun, Emin Colasan have been pressured to be fired from their media outlets. While all these innocent people are in Silivri jail, the peole who have been found responsible for the DENIZFENERI case in German courts are not simply free in Turkey but one is heading the national broadcasting organization. Telephones are being listened by the government illegaly and information obtained by these phone taps are being leaked to the supporting media such as PM Erdohan's son in law's Sabah, Zaman, Vakit etc. Do you really believe this is democracy let alone advanced democracy as your PM calls it?
