The scandal decision of Greek justice shocked the public
The lawsuit which was filed by Xanthi MP Hüseyin Zeybek against Panos Papadopoulos, the owner of Machitis resulted with acquittal despite the prosecutor’s decision as “fake news”. The decision to acquit the fake news shocked everyone.
In the funeral of Ahmet Katunlu the Turkish Minority member who passed away during his military service, it was claimed as fake news that the Greek flag was thrown away by the Deputy Hüseyin Zeybek. In this accordance, Zeybek filed a lawsuit to Papadopoulos and it resulted with acquittal despite the prosecutor’s desicion as fake news.
It was clearly stated by Zeybek that such tolerance towards the Greek media was never seen for the minority newspapers Gündem and Millet.
This case was evaluated as a double standart in the justice by the public opinion. When looking back to the previous cases of the minority press it is clearly seen that the press members have received numbers of compensations and imprisonments with the slightest claim even if this is fake.
