Turkish parliament passed anti-terror legislation
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On June 29, 2006, the Turkish Grand National Assembly broadened the country's anti-terror laws by adopting legislation that delayed a suspect's guaranteed access to a lawyer for the first 24 hours of detention and expanded the definition of offenses classified as terrorism. The acts classified as terrorism include human trafficking, drug smuggling, obstruction of education, influencing tenders, prostitution, pollution of the environment and credit card forgery. The Turkish government proposed the law to fight resurgent Kurdish separatists like the Kurdistan Worker's Party that have increased attacks in the years prior.
