ANKARA: Labor Party Launches A Do Not Purchase Swiss Goods Campaign

LABOR PARTY LAUNCHES A DO NOT PURCHASE SWISS GOODS CAMPAIGN

The Anatolian Times, Turkey

ANKARA – Turkish Labor Party (IP) deputy leader Mehmet Bedri Gultekin
has indicated today that his party has launched a campaign titled
“Do Not Purchase Swiss Goods” that will be effective until the Swiss
Parliament revokes a decision it adopted earlier on the so-called
Armenian genocide.

Members of the IP convened in capital Ankara’s main square Kizilay and
carried banners and shouted slogans encouraging Turks not to purchase
Swiss made goods due to the decision of the Swiss parliament vis-a-vis
the so-called genocide of Armenians.

Gultekin pointed out that IP leader Dogu Perincek was called by the
Lausanne Prosecutor’s Office. Perincek was warned by the Swiss police
officers before he gave a speech on the so-called Armenian genocide.

“The acts of the Swiss police have hurt the democratic image of
Switzerland. Despite the warnings, Perincek delivered his speech,”
told Gultekin.

Gultekin said Perincek will be questioned tomorrow by the Lausanne
Prosecutor.
