PRESS RELEASE KATI PIRI 25-6-2017
Correction false media reports about Kati Piri’s participation in Kurdish conference 29 June.
Piri: “On June 29th, some individual members of the European Parliament, in cooperation with the Kurdish Institute in Brussels, are hosting an event on freedom of the press in Turkey. I was invited by the organizers to give a speech at the event, but declined. Despite this, the programme had been spread including my name, with the notification ‘to be confirmed’. I regret that this resulted in false media reports in the Turkish press. I had and still have no intention to speak at the conference on 29 June.”
