Wikipedia restored in Turkey after being banned for over 2 years

Published on January 16, 2020 by

It comes after the Constitutional Court ruled that it was a breach of freedom of expression to have banned the online encyclopedia.

All editions had been fully restored for almost all users, according to Netblocks, who monitors internet connectivity, shortly after the Constitutional Court published it’s ruling in its official gazette.

Wikipedia had initially been blocked in 2017 due to two URLs, which according to the Court, had portrayed Turkey as supporting terrorist groups in the Syrian War.
