If HDP engages in terror then it should pay the price: Turkish PM
AA photoThose who come with elections go with elections, but they should “pay the price” if they engage in “terror,” Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım has replied to Republican People’s Party (CHP) Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu in regard to the main opposition leader’s reaction against the detention of Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) deputies.
“Politics cannot be a shield for committing a crime. Turkey is a state of law,” Yıldırım told journalists on Nov. 4, adding that HDP members should have given their testimonies when called to do so by Turkish state authorities.
“The superiority of the law is fundamental,” he added.
Yıldırım also said the internet connection issues were part of measures taken for security purposes and that they were temporary.
