Turkey has been in the news a lot over the last few weeks, this is because the Turkish prime minister blocked the countries access to YouTube and Twitter.
The websites were blocked after videos of alleged government corruption were published on YouTube, although the Turkish courts ruled that blocks should be removed.
Now the Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that he will go after Twitter, YouTube and Facebook for Tax evasion, you can see what he had to say below.
“Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are international companies established for profit and making money,” Erdogan said.
“Twitter is at the same time a tax evader. We will go after it,” he added.
“These companies, like every international company, will abide by my country’s constitution, laws and tax rules”.
Many internet users in Turkey were able to get around the ban on these websites, this included the Turkish President, Abdullah Gul, who described the Turkish prime ministers blocking of Twitter and other sites unacceptable.
