A Turkish military court banned on Friday the broadcast of stories regarding terrorism, except those handed out to media organs.
Turkish General Staff's Military Court decided to ban broadcast of real-time images of members of the PKK, documents and digital records regarding secret intelligence about the cross-border operation into north of Iraq.
The General Staff's military prosecutor launched an investigation after real-time intelligence images, which were classified, were broadcast on a TV channel. The prosecutor demanded that broadcasts should be ended until the investigation --launched within the scope of an article regulating "crimes against state secrets" --was finalized.
The court ruled that the investigation was related with "documents regarding the state security", and decided to ban broadcast of stories, images, documents and digital records regarding terrorism and fight against terrorism, except those handed out to media organs.
