Sener Levent's protection measures are demanded by MEP Dimitris Papadakis in a written question to the European Commission.
Sener Levent, awarded in 2018 with the European Citizen Award, is receiving serious threats from the Turkish government and its subordinate administration in occupied Cyprus, after being summoned to “court” on December 23, 2020, for a case registered in 2019, at the Ankara Criminal Court.

The MEP, in the written question that he has submitted before the European Commission, states that the accusations against S. Levent, where they provide for imprisonment from one to four years, derive from three of his articles, which have been published in the newspaper “Africa”. All three lawsuits were filed on charges of insulting Erdogan.
D. Papadakis, taking into account the attempt to silence and intimidate against Sener Levent, as well as the right of all citizens to freedom of opinion and expression, submitted the following questions to the European Commission:
– Is she aware of the facts?
– What measures is it prepared to take to protect a European citizen who has even been awarded the European Citizen Prize?
