Chair of Turkey’s far-right Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), Devlet Bahçeli, commented on the arrest of main opposition party MP Enis Berberoğlu, who was tried in the MİT truck case and has been sentenced to 25 years in jail.
Sharing his messages on social media, Bahçeli criticized the main opposition party’s decision to launch a Justice March in reaction to the arrest of Berberoğlu: “As a result of this decision (of the court), CHP has stood up in hurry and kicked up a row with prejudice.”
Also asserting that ‘Turkey is obviously a target of never-ending deep plots and masked operations’, Bahçeli said ‘legal appeal processes should have been exhausted by CHP instead of acting in a fury.’
“Justice is not a lost item that we will find on the road or a treasure buried under ground that we would bump into. And, not knowing this is ignorance,” said Bahçeli.
Criticizing CHP for ‘announcing the regime in Turkey at international platforms as a dictatorship’, Bahçeli also added: “Injustice in Turkey will not end by snitching on our country to the west.”
Implying on a possibility of a counter-protest, Bahçeli asked: ‘I wonder, where would the meeting point be if another march is launched from the opposite side, İstanbul?’
“I call on the CHP members: pull yourselves together! If possible and unpredictable incidents emerge, neither you nor our country can overcome that!”
Despite initial opposition to several policies of AKP - especially the presidential system proposals -, MHP later joined the ruling party in their bid for controversial constitutional amendments which were approved in a rigged referendum in April this year. Disagreements among the members of MHP over cooperation with AKP have ended up with several MHP members either resigning or being discharged.
