TURKISH PRESS REVIEW ON FEB 7

Turkish dailies on Thursday covered Turkey's ruling party's radical change proposal for the new constitution, Turkish colonel's visit of a Kurdish opinion leader and FBI's statements regarding new evidence in the Sierra case. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Most of the Turkish dailies covered the proposal of Prime Minister and ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "Shocking judicial package" headlined daily HURRIYET referring to AK Party's proposal of radical changes for the higher judiciary in the new constitution. AK Party seeks to replace the Supreme Court of Appeals and the Council of State, both courts serving as cessation courts, with a Supreme Court which will act as an appeals court, according to the daily.

Furthermore, Turkish dailies covered the visit of the Turkish colonel and the accompanying delegation to the Kurdish opinion leader, 81-year-old Latifan Katirci, in the southeastern province of Hakkari. "He embraced the colonel who greeted him in Kurdish" headlined daily ZAMAN over the joy of the Kurdish opinion leader over the friendly visit and chat with the Turkish colonel and the accompanying soldiers.

Most dailies covered the statements of FBI in regards to the the murder of the missing American woman, Sarai Sierra who had disappeared on January 21 in Istanbul. "Sierra murder not ordinary" headlined daily SABAH over the statements of an FBI agent who said, "Sierra's visit in Istanbul was not for taking photos. There is a possibility of her being a drug courier." Although her family rejects such speculations, FBI awaits Turkish authorities to enlighten the murder.
