Parliamentary Leader Prof. Dr. Mustafa Şentop made evaluations about DBP Diyarbakır Deputy Salihe Aydeniz punching the police officer on duty during the unauthorized show held in Kadıköy.
ANKARA (IGFA) – Speaker of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey Mustafa Şentop underlined that immunity does not mean freedom of deputies unless it is a mistake granted to them.

Şentop said, “My personal opinion is the lifting of immunity this matter,” and added, “If it comes to the Presidency of the Assembly, we will refer to it regarding the Joint Committee. Later, the authority in the Joint Committee and the General Assembly. But I can say my personal opinion on this issue. There is no such thing. “I think that immunity should be lifted and the necessary punishment should be given. An action by a deputy against the police in this way should never be tolerated,” he said.
