Redhack members face virtual terrorism charges

A report recently prepared by the National Police Department into the recent nationwide Gezi Park protests has stated that members of the Socialist hacker group RedHack (Kızıl Hackerlar) committed virtual terrorism by inciting people to commit criminal acts in the tweets posted on the account “@TheRedHack” during the protests.

The National Police Department launched a large-scale investigation into the online activities of Redhack during the Gezi Park protests and determined the identities of the members of the group from their IP addresses. The Sabah daily reported on Thursday that the National Police Department is seeking legal action against Redhack.

The police department stated in its report that Redhack posted many tweets that invited people to attend the protests and incited people to commit crimes during the Gezi Park protests. The police department also included some tweets posted on the Redhack account in the report. A tweet posted on June 14 states, “People from around the country will be on the streets as of 2.00 p.m.” In another tweet posed on June 15, Redhack stated: “We are protesting for a fair, non-exploitative and classless world, for brotherhood and freedom. If they are so brave, they can stop us.” In other tweet, again posted on June 15, Redhack stated: “They [Justice and Development Party (AK Party) government] provides people with free transportation or food for their rallies, but they give us tear gas, police batons and police attack car. Do you continue to be silent?”

According to the Sabah report, Prosecutor Muammer Akkaş will launch an investigation into Redhack based on the police report. The prosecutor will reportedly investigate members of Redhack on charges of virtual terrorism.
