Johannes Hahn on the expulsion of “Orizont” Turkish high school teachers: “I expect the Government of Moldova to respect the rule of law”

The subject of the expulsion of Turkish teachers from the “Orizont” Turkish high school came to the attention of European officials. EU Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, urged Chisinau to respect the rule of law. His message awakened the supporters on the Internet, who left numerous comments calling for help in rescuing teachers.

The daughter of one of the Turkish citizens expelled on Thursday sent a desperate message to the authorities:

“My father is not a terrorist. Please release him.”

The call was made yesterday at Chisinau Airport, where relatives and colleagues of the seven people employed at Orizont High School waited to find out where they are and what happened to them.

The girl declared that when she went to school with her family, her father was forced to get into a big car.

“We cried out and ran after him, but they closed the door and drove away,” the girl said.

Reminder: On Thursday, SIS announced that seven foreign citizens suspected of ties to an Islamist group were declared undesirable by competent authorities and will get expelled from the territory of the Republic of Moldova. Amnesty International Moldova said that the security service was carried out with outrageous violation of the rules on freedom and security of persons stipulated in the conventions which the Republic of Moldova is part of.
