Republican People’s Party (CHP) İstanbul MP and Grand National Assembly of Turkey (TBMM) Security and Intelligence Commission member Barış Yarkadaş has declared that police prepared summary of proceedings for 17,000 social media users and addresses of 45,000 others are being tried to be located.

Stating that social media sharings are being monitored by Social Media Monitoring Unit, Yarkadaş said “Prosecutors will take action over the summary of proceedings prepared by the unit. No detention proceeding is taking place at the moment since detention centers in İstanbul are already full. That is why the cases are not put in process for the moment”.

Stressing that Halk TV programmer Hüsnü Mahallı was arrested due to his tweets, Yarkadaş recalled that six media workers including ETHA Director in Charge Derya Okatan have been kept in custody for 20 days without a justification.
