“The demand from the prosecutor’s office is that this image not be used anywhere in electronic platforms,” Kalin told a news conference in Ankara.
The ban was implemented by a number of the country’s leading ISPs on Monday afternoon, the Internet Service Providers Union (ESB) Secretary General Bülent Kent told the Hurriyet Daily News.
All service providers are expected to implement the ban soon, he said.
