Turkish group hacks French politician’s website
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily NewsA Turkish cyber group hacked French politician Patrick Devedjian's website in protest of the recent French bill criminalizing the denial of Armenian “genocide.”
The message the group released criticized France for being "two-faced" for advocating free speech but criminalizing the denial of Armenian claims of genocide. The group further called the Armenian Diaspora advocates “cowards” and called for the opening of historical archives.
Devedjian is known as a close associate of French President Nicolas Sarkozy as well as a member of the ruling party. He is also known for his pro-Armenian views.
Another recent hacking had occurred by the same group only a few weeks ago targeting Valerie Boyer, the author of the French resolution.
The draft law that passed recently makes it a crime to publicly deny the Armenian claims of genocide regarding the events of 1915.
