Turkey: Landmark European Court Decision finds blanket Google… · Article 19

Turkey: Landmark European Court Decision finds blanket Google… · Article 19: "The European Court found that the blocking order amounted to a violation of Yıldırım’s right to freedom of expression for the following reasons:
In order to comply with the requirements of Article 10 of the European Convention, a restriction must be prescribed by law, which means it must be formulated with sufficient precision to enable individuals to regulate their conduct. However, the relevant Turkish law did not authorise the wholesale blocking of an entire online platform such as Google Sites. The law also failed to provide sufficient safeguards against potential abuses.
There was no evidence that Google Sites had been informed that it was hosting content held to be illegal, or that it had refused to comply with an interim measure concerning a site that was the subject of pending criminal proceedings.
The law had conferred extensive powers on an administrative body, the TİB, in the implementation of a blocking order originally issued in relation to a specified site. "
