Erdogan: adultery finally punishable?

Turkish justice ministry to draft new law. "This society has a different rank when it comes to moral values"

Who has the better moral values, the eu or turkey?? The excitement associated with such a juxtaposition, and the ease with which it can be drawn, provides the background motive for the following "conservative" law renewal, which turkish president erdogan has already initiated, according to his spokesman ibrahim kalın: the reintroduction of punishment in case of "adultery, infidelity or extramarital sexual intercourse".

The reading that erdogan’s initiative has much to do with a moral standoff with the eu is emphasized in an al-monitor report on the intention to criminalize adultery. But the decisive factor for this reading was erdogan himself.

The turkish president had the topic "punishment of adultery" mentioned in connection with child abuse cases. Serious case of child abuse had caused some fuss in the turkish public and discussions about chemical catastration. Erdogan put the ie in a broader legal framework.

At least this is how it was reported by turkish newspapers a week ago. He added his regret to his proposal that adultery should also be punished by law, namely that he had withdrawn a turkish law on punishment in 2004 in order not to jeopardize admission talks with the eu.

I must say that in the eu (admission, import, and. D. A.This is a matter in which turkey differs from the majority of western countries.

The law on adultery caused an outcry both in turkey and abroad (especially in the eu), reports the english-language hurriyet news.

Turkey: special rank when it comes to moral values

There, erdogan is further quoted as saying that persons guilty of child abuse should be exempt from punishment reduction – and that he considered legal regulations on adultery in the same "validity range" see. "In the legal regulations on adultery, we consider all of those abuses as if they were within the same scope", the turkish prasident is represented.

"This society has a different rank (‘status’) when it comes to moral values", erdogan said a week ago to the akp parliamentary group, where he "self-critical" confessed that the withdrawal of the law criminalizing adultery was a "and extramarital sex" 2004 was a mistake.

He also indicated that the introduction of the death penalty remains particularly important for turkey in the fight against terrorism. The introduction of the death penalty, as the eu representatives have already set as an unmistakable red line, would be the end of the accession negotiations between the eu and turkey.

In any case, there is probably no certainty, not only among the public but also in circles in brussels as well as in ankara, as to whether the admission process is still politically relevant as long as erdogan is in power. Like the so-called refugee pact between the eu and turkey, it is becoming an ie of the future "game"-use if there are conflicts.

"As dangerous as terrorism"

Erdogan, who is in the midst of a permanent election campaign to expand his powers, is cleverly using the eu’s hypocritical permanent advertising of human rights to show how much better it is for turkey to pursue its own independent course. Whose horizon is, as many indications and very clearly education policy show, "islamist".

What this also implies, as the al-monitor article mentioned at the beginning points out, is made clear by conservative comments. Al-monitor quotes rahim er: "divorce, drugs, irresponsible pleasure, immoral print and internet publications are as dangerous as terrorism … Laws and legislation should be tied to the land, ‘native/indigenous’, and national".

According to experts quoted in the article, it will not be easy for the legislation to satisfy the sacred strata of society and the religious. If the new law on adultery – unlike the previous ones – puts women and men on an equal footing, then justice has been done to a decision of the constitutional court and to the demands of sacular-oriented turkic women and turks, but not to strict, conservative muslims, who, for example, have several wives, but can be legally married to only one of them. The ban on adultery became this "conservative men" in trouble, according to al-monitor.
