Two newspapers belonging to Shams Ethem Sancak, who once said his love for President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was akin to the love between Rumi and his companion and spiritual guide, Shams al-Tabrizi, has thrown a claim before the elections. It was about the preparation of an assassination against Sümeyye Erdoğan.
Apparently, a columnist from daily Taraf, Emre Uslu, and Republican People’s Party (CHP) parliamentarians Umut Oran and Akif Hamzaçebi had sent direct tweets to each other. The prosecution proved these messages to be fake and opened five separate court case on accusations of insults and smears against those responsible at the two nevvspapers.
