Erdogan Says He Supports Restoring Death Penalty

AFP

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has once again brought up the issue of restoring the death penalty, vowing to approve such legislation if parliament passes it, after the murder of a woman by her ex-husband last week sparked nationwide outrage, ''Hurriyet'' reports. 

"Everything is expected from the state. They insist on the death penalty and I, as president, say that I would approve the death sentence if parliament passes it. Today, I have the same stance," Erdogan told private broadcaster CNN Türk on Aug. 28.

Erdogan's remarks came about a week after Emine Bulut was brutally murdered by her ex-husband, who slit her throat in a café before the eyes of her 10-year-old daughter.
