Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
William (The Earl of) Dartmouth (EFD)

 Subject:  Censorship in Turkey part of a democratic agenda?
 Answer(s) 

1. Given the recent revelation that the Turkish Government is censoring the website YouTube after a video of officials discussing potential military action in Syria was leaked on the site, is it the view of the Commission that Turkey respects and adheres to the democratic values and institutions sponsored by the EU?

2. If the Commission does not believe that Turkey is currently demonstrating proper respect for democratic institutions and values, will the Commission reconsider Turkey’s candidacy to the EU?

3. If the Commission does not believe that Turkey is currently demonstrating proper respect for democratic institutions and values, will the Commission reconsider Turkey’s pre-accession funding allowance?
