Courts Allow Turkish Demonstration in Berlin

–Demonstrators cannot deny Genocide

The German Court of Appeals allowed on Friday a demonstration organized by Turks against the recognition of the Armenian genocide and in honor of Talaat Pasha to be held Saturday–March 18. The court has allowed the controversial demonstration–but forbade demonstrators from denying the Genocide either verbally or in writing.

The court also called on the police to strictly enforce this decision.

The Berlin Police Department wanted the demonstration to be banned completely because they feared violence would erupt and because they suspected demonstrators would try to both deny and glorify the Armenian genocide.
