Regarding speculation gathered from social media and open sources that a meeting and demonstration march with theme “November 25 LGBTI+” as well as film and discussion events in the same theme was planned to take place in our Beyoğlu district on 25.11.2017:
Because applications for the aforementioned events were not submitted within the framework of Law No: 2911 and 2559.
Because the events may be contrary to the Constitutional order or general morality, and because they may pose clear and immediate danger to public order and security:
They will not be allowed to ensure public order and security, to protect other people’s rights and freedoms and to prevent crime, within the framework of our District Governor’s 24/11/2017 2283 and 2284 decisions based on Law No: 2911 on Meetings and Demonstrations’ Article 17 and 28, Law No: 2559 on Police Powers Appendix 1 and Law No: 5442 Article 32/ç.
Respectfully announced to the public.
