Turkey Calls On Greece To Investigate Threat Against Lawmaker

Turkey on Friday called on authorities in Greece to investigate a death threat against a Greek lawmaker who is also a member of the country's Muslim Turkish minority.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry said that Huseyin Zeybek, a member of the Greek parliament, was threatened on live television.

It said in a statement; "We expect the Greek authorities to investigate this serious incident and punish the perpetrators.

"We stand behind the Turkish Minority of Western Thrace, which will not give up its struggle for human rights and freedom despite all threats and pressure.”

According to a statement by the advisory board, Zeybek was threatened during a live broadcast on local Next TV by a person who called into the program.

The board said the threatening phone call intended to "turn the marginalizing and targeting rhetoric (by Greece) that has been going on for many years into action."
