We restricted access in Turkey to categories of content in response to requests from the Telecommunications Authority, Turkish courts, and the Access Providers Union. We also restricted access to content in categories identified as illegal that have been brought to our attention by non-government entities, such as NGOs and members of the Facebook community. The majority of the content was restricted under local law 5651, which covers a range of offenses including personal rights violations, personal privacy, and defamation of Ataturk.
