    Turkey has launched an investigation into hundreds of social networking accounts that "published negative information about the lira"
    The Turkish Interior Ministry has opened an investigation into 346 accounts on social networks after publishing comments about the weakening of the lira "provocatively". After the drop in the pound, the Turkish currency strengthened by about 10 percent against the dollar

    The Turkish Interior Ministry announced Monday that it has opened an investigation into 346 social accounts that have published negative information about the Turkish lira in an attempt to "provoke controversy," according to the Turkish government, in light of the dramatic currency crisis.

    The Istanbul prosecutor's office told the CNBC website that the investigations are being conducted against citizens who threaten Turkey's "economic security" by publishing comments about the weakening of the lira "provocatively."

    The Turkish lira has lost 30% of its value in three days and has lost more than 40% of its value against the dollar since the beginning of the year as investors fear Erdogan's loss of central bank independence and worsening already tense relations with the US.







    The weakening of the lira against the dollar intensified especially after US President Donald Trump announced his decision to impose sanctions on the arrest of American priest Andrew Bronson, who has been held in Ankara since 2016 and charged with espionage.



    It should be noted that today the Turkish lira has recovered and is gaining about 10% against the dollar.



    The Turkish investigation into social networking opened on the grounds that the United States and other countries had launched "economic terrorism" against the state and warned that it would take punitive measures against media and social networks aimed at weakening Turkish assets.

    Yep Turkey is on right track to catch the MOSSAD troll house.

    Indian trolls from Chennai and US troll houses and many African based companies were involved in this whole drama plus pkk from Syria and Iraq were also involved. Good move by Turkey.

    Good move. This needs to be done in Pakistan as well, loads of fake social media accounts spreading negativity and trying to instigate anarchy day and night.

    How the authorities in Turkey will determine the intention of that people?
    How will they classify info in treacherous activity?
    No doubt peoples talking and sharing such info do for different motives in mind but all can't be traitors...

    Agreed...
    But analysis, predictions, forcasting etc are the part of economy, fears can also be genuine and sometimes fearing has some un-describable reason behind it so, suppose, somebody has solid reason to support his argument then how will they be treated? I am not talking about perpetrators but, given the scenario in Turkey, any expert can predict what is normally expected in this scenario.

    Erdogan should respect freedom of speech. Sometimes he goes too far. It looks like unannounced dictatorship.
