President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Nov. 1 filed a demand for damages worth 50,000 Turkish Liras against main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) spokesperson Bülent Tezcan, after Tezcan called him a “fascist dictator.”

In blistering criticism of Erdogan, the spokesman for the main opposition Republican People’s Party, Bulent Tezcan, attacked what he said was a “fearful atmosphere” in Turkey.

Erdogan’s lawyer, Huseyin Aydin, said on Twitter: “We have filed a legal petition concerning Bulent Tezcan with the Ankara chief prosecutor’s office for the crime of insulting the president.” Aydin also posted photos of the petition.
