Turkish court rules partial lifting of YouTube ban

Bishkek (AKIpress) - yt A Turkish court ruled Friday that a blanket ban on YouTube violated human rights and ordered most of the restrictions be lifted, citing a top court ruling this week that scrapped a similar ban on microblogging site Twitter, Reuters reported.

The state telecoms authority March 27 blocked access to YouTube, Google's video-sharing site, after anonymously leaked audio recordings appeared there purportedly of senior officials discussing a possible attack on Syria ahead of an election.

Access to Twitter had been similiarly barred until the Constitutional Court on Thursday ruled that violated the law. The court in the capital Ankara said the YouTube ban was too broad and instead specifically blocked access to 15 videos, a copy of the court document showed.
