A Turkish court on Wednesday lifted a ban on Wikipedia after almost three years.

Turkey was the only country in the world apart from China to entirely block access to the online encyclopedia.

But its constitutional court ruled last month that the ban, in place since April 2017, violated freedom of expression.

Turkish officials said in 2017 that the ban was needed as Wikipedia had failed to remove content accusing its government of assisting terrorist groups.

Do you think this was a violation of freedom of expression?

The blockage of information is indeed violation of freedom of expression. Ban’s and restriction on the media and internet sources shows the controlling side of the government. And when governments take these steps to ban everything that maligns their “image,” the democracy of their country is heavily effected.
