Today, the Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned statements made by Greek officials and the burning of the Turkish flag in Greece, in protest against the performance of the Islamic prayer there.

In a statement, Turkish Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Hamis Aksoy, said that Greece “has again demonstrated its hostility to Islam and Turkey under the pretext of reacting to the opening of the Hagia Sophia Mosque for prayer.”

Church bells ranged across Greece on Friday, in conjunction with the establishment of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, praying in the crowds of worshipers at the site.

The gathering concluded its statement by saying: “There is no great deal in front of the voice of change and its roaring river. We make mistakes, share, and correct, and people who benefit will stay on the ground.”

The Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, on Friday sent a message marking the 46th anniversary of the restoration of democracy in the country, in which he described Turkey as “troubling”, considering the conversion of the Hagia Sophia to a mosque “underestimating the civilization of the twenty-first century.”

Observers consider the Friday prayers in the Hagia Sophia to fulfill Erdogan’s dream that Muslims will return to the historic site, which the Greeks consider to be central to their Orthodox faith.

The union expressed its strong fear of “involving journalists in political conflicts, calling on the Supreme Judicial Council to intervene urgently to investigate this judicial scandal,” noting that Bin Brik was one of the headlines of resisting tyranny and silencing mouths under the previous regime.

Tunisian media quoted Ziad Dabbar, a member of the Executive Bureau of the Tunisian Journalists Syndicate, as saying that “the ruling sends a message that the judges are above accountability and are protected with immunity … We consider this a prelude to the dictatorship of the judges.”

On Thursday, a Tunisian court sentenced Ben Brik to one year in prison, on charges of insulting the judiciary during statements that included criticism of the judiciary and judges, due to the arrest of his friend, presidential candidate, Nabil Karoui, in 2019.

Ben Brik, who was known for his satirical writings against the regime of Ben Ali, prior to the 2011 revolution, criticized the judiciary for pursuing his friend, businessman, Nabil Karoui, president of the Tunisian Heart Party, who was imprisoned weeks before he contested the presidential race in 2019; Due to financial corruption issues.
