Minister of Health Ahmet Demircan has made a statement about Turkish Medical Association (TTB) Central Council members being detained.
Reminding of TTB’s declaration entitled “War is a Matter of Public Health” on Afrin operation, the Minister Demircan said that the TTB doesn’t respect the medical community with this declaration.
Demircan went on:
“This shouldn’t be perceived as a simple statement about the attack that the people are facing. There is a legal responsibility of releasing such a declaration.
“Turkey is governed by rule of law. Beyond this point is a legal process. Medical Association is not at a point where it represents Turkish medics.
“It is unacceptable for an association whose name starts with ‘Turkish’ to such a thing for an attack that Turkey is facing”. (EKN/TK)
