Constitutional Court of Turkey approved of the Presidential Communications Directorate to access all private information of Turkish citizens through all official institutions and public companies.
According to journalist Alican Uludağ’s article on ankaragazetecisi.com, the Consittutional Court of Turkey has ruled that Communications Directorate requesting private information belonging to any citizen from all official institutions and public companies when they see it “necessary”, does not violate the constitution. Five members of the court including the President of the Constitutional Court, Zühtü Arslan objected to the ruling and warned that the private data of the citizens would then be in the hands of the Presidential Communications Directorate without any provisions or data protection procedure.
