Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK) fined seven TV channels which aired Republican People’s Party (CHP) group meeting over insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Turkish media reported on Thursday that the TV channels, including Can Erzincan, Habertürk, NTV, Ulusal, CNN Türk, Bengütürk and Halk TV, were fined for allegedly airing the meeting, in which a group of spectators chanted slogans which allegedly included insults to Erdoğan on May 20.

Erdoğan had reportedly filed a criminal complaint over the ones who chanted the slogans with his lawyer, Hüseyin Aydın.

The parliamentary group deputy chairmen of CHP then published a statement, saying that the slogans did not target Justice and Development Party (AK Party) voters and also the party leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu stopped the slogans with his hand gestures.
