In Turkey Woman Who Recognizes Armenian Genocide is Elected the Head of Main Opposition Party Istanbul Chapter

TRT World

Canan Kaftancıoğlu, who has been elected as head of the Istanbul Province Chapter of main parliamentary opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) of Turkey, has been targeted by the pro-government media, Artsakhpress reports.

Turkish pro-government media and representatives of the authorities have launched a smear campaign against Kaftancıoğlu, in the press and on social media.

One of the main accusations made against her is that she recognized Armenian Genocide, by means of Twitter, on April 24, 2012, the anniversary day of this tragedy.

''Today in history: Armenian Genocide started,'' Canan Kaftancıoğlu had tweeted on that day. ''We commemorate our murdered Armenian citizens, at 19:15 at Taksim''.
