‘Without any hesitation’: Erdogan vows to reinstate death penalty

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said he would approve the reinstatement of capital punishment in Turkey “without any hesitation” as he drummed up support for the upcoming constitutional referendum.

“I believe, God willing, that after the April 16 vote, the parliament will do the necessary thing concerning your demands for capital punishment. As for me, I will approve it without any hesitation,” he said at a Martyrs' Memorial Day rally, commemorating the Ottoman Empire’s victory in the battle of Gallipoli in 1915.

Erdogan went on to imply that the death penalty could then be applied to the coup plotters, who tried to overthrow the Turkish government on July 15, 2016.

“Who opened fire on their brothers in arms that night? Who attacked their own people with tanks and artillery, bombed the parliament, the presidential complex, and headquarters of the Special Forces? They are all busted. Our people should be at ease. Those murderers and their supporters will get the penalty they deserve,” he said during the rally.

  • I wonder if NATO is finally considering, revoking Turkey's membership yet.
