Turkish opposition leader sues Erdogan, who calls him 'miserable, pathetic, incompetent'
Turkey’s main opposition CHP leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu is set to file a lawsuit against President Tayyip Erdogan, who labeled him as "deprived of dignity, miserable, pathetic, heedless, despicable, incompetent, brazen" in just one speech while addressing his fellow deputies in a meeting in the parliament.
"We will hold him accountable for those insults and attacks devoid of moral values! We will immediately file a lawsuit” Kilicdaroglu’s lawyer Celal Celik said in a tweet.
During his speech, Erdogan said:
“An undignified who accuses his own state of financing its budget with drug money is the last person to pronounce the word responsibility. A miserable person who thinks it's political to stab his own state over the rise of the stock market cannot come close to the expression of responsibility. A craven can not talk about responsibility when he does not have the courage to call a terrorist, a terrorist, and a terrorist organization a terrorist organization. A scant who turns a blind eye to the disgraces in his own municipalities and party organizations can not even say the first letter of responsibility.”
