TURKISH PRESS REVIEW on FEB. 17

Turkish dailies on Monday cover Prime Minister Erdogan's remarks in the Istanbul City Hospital foundation ceremony and the controversy of ‘parallel state tapping’.

“The Turkish nation will set the final headline, not parallel media,” say the front pages of dailies STAR and TURKIYE. The STAR used a photograph of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan speaking at a ceremony in Istanbul to mark the start of the construction of a new hospital.

Erdogan accused the ‘parallel media’ over a story about a veiled woman who was attacked in front of Istanbul’s Kabatas docks by Gezi protesters at the peak of the anti-government protests.

Daily VATAN writes that police intelligence will tender for the purchase of new listening devices of which 11 have been claimed to have been lost within two months.

Daily MILLIYET writes ‘Discrimination in the parking lot against women’ in the southern Antalya province. A shopping mall administration has designated wider parking spaces marked for women but lots of women organizations have reacted by saying ‘They insult us’.

Daily TURKIYE also underlines that the Turkish Foreign Ministry’s direct cash aid to the Somali government in the second half of 2013 was handed over to their counterpart appropriately.
