Turkey: Possible referendum on death penalty is a red line for the EU, President Tajani says

“Very concerned about mention a possible referendum on death penalty in Turkey. This is a red line for the European Union,” President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani tweeted on Monday.

Erdoğan said during his arrival to Ankara from Istanbul on April 17 that he would approve the return of the death penalty if the parliament passes such a law to pay respect “to our martyrs,” as Hurriyet News reported.
