Turkey allows YouTube back

June 3, 2014

youtubeappThe Turkish telecoms regulator has removed an official order from its website blocking access to YouTube after the country’s top court ruled last week the ban imposed by Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan’s government was a breach of rights.

YouTube will be accessible in Turkey from June 3rd, an official at the Prime Minister’s office told Reuters.

Blocks on access to YouTube and Twitter were imposed after audio recordings, purportedly revealing corruption in Erdogan’s inner circle, were leaked on the sites.
