Turkish Judge: Blockade Wikipedia is A Violation of Freedom of Opinion. According to the jury, the blockade of the Wikipedia online encyclopedia in Turkey is a violation of freedom of expression.

 

That is what the Turkish constitutional court has determined today. The ruling paves the way for lifting the blockade.

The blockade was established in April 2017.

 

According to the Turkish authorities, there were contributions on the site in which Turkey was accused of links with terrorist organisations and the administrators refused to adjust them.

The Wikimedia Foundation previously unsuccessfully appealed to the court against the blockade.
