(AGI) Paris - The French law punishing negation of the Armenian
genocide is unconstitutional according to the Supreme Court, which
has ruled that parliament has committed an "unconstitutional attack
on freedom of speech." The appeal against the law approved in January,
had been presented by a group of Members of Parliament. Led by a number
of left-wing senators and supported by 76 colleagues, this initiative
had been welcomed by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan,
who had announced sanctions against France when the law was passed,
describing it as "racist and discriminatory." . .
