On the grounds that his permanent press card was not renewed, Yeni Asya newspaper editor-in-chief Kazım Güleçyüz filed a lawsuit against the Presidency’s Communications Directorate. In the justification of the case filed at the Ankara Administrative Court, Mustafa Özbek, the attorney of the newspaper, said that though an application was made with a petition dated December 21, 2020 and it was requested that the press card be changed and a new card be sent, the request was tacitly rejected by not giving a response. The petition requested a stay of execution by referring to the Article 27/2 of the Code of Administrative Procedure, which says, “…if the related administrative action is taken, it meets both conditions, namely an irrecoverable or irreparable damage and the open unlawfulness of the related administrative action” (April 22).
