Video/ Argument between the panelists in the Turkish show. The deputy beats the journalist
The debate over the judiciary in Turkey has ended in violence. While discussing the arrested Kurdish leader Selahettin Demirtas, as well as Osman Kavalan who is being held in prison without any concrete charges, MP Kemal Enginhurt said: "The police and the state belong to us."
This statement was not well received by journalist Latif Simsek, part of the panel. The latter told him to stop talking and from that moment the deputy stood up to him. They were physically confronted, until the MP's bodyguard appeared in the studio and continued to abuse the journalist, who also lost consciousness.
The program was interrupted to resume 20 minutes later.
