Anger over Turkish justice minister in Germany amid Deniz Yucel arrest uproar
Days after the imprisonment of a German-Turkish journalist, a speech by Turkey's Justice Minister in Germany has sparked outrage. Bekir Bozdag aims to promote constitutional reform to strengthen presidential power.
Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag is due to give a campaign speech on Thursday in the southwestern German town of Gaggenau.
Addressing the Turkish population in Germany, Bozdag wants to promote the constitutional reform to expand the powers of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
