Turkey PKK trial: Mehmet Tahir Ilhan is the lemon Kurd

by | 17th, June 2012

TO Turkey, where Mehmet Tahir Ilhan is in the dock. Ilhan is a Kurd in illegal possession of a lemon.

It’s alleged that Mehmet Tahir Ilhan, who is deaf and unable to speak, is in the business of producing  propaganda for the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). The prosecutors wants him jailed for 25 years for supporting terrorism. Evidence? His lemon, which, we learn, can reduce the effects of tear gas.

Mr Ilhan says he was just unlucky to have been in the area when a pro-Kurdish demonstration turned violent.

He is, as he must be, the Lemon Kurd.
