    EU Commissioner on expansion, Olli Rehn has announced that the recent lawsuit on Orhan Pamuk is within the EU’s “red lines” – suggesting that not changing the articles which led to the lawsuit will hinder negotiations. Talking in Vienna, Rehn said Turkey has fulfilled criteria for negotiation talks to commence on October 3, with the ultimate goal of full membership. After the official announcement, Rehn talked to journalists and stated that they would be closely monitoring Pamuk’s trial.

    “Some articles in the new Criminal Act are highly prone to misinterpretation,” Rehn said on another note, “we have warned Turkish authorities, stating that this is against human rights and is totally unacceptable.”

    Rehn also asserted that Turkey should apply the Customs Union protocol treaty to Cyprus with no restrictions whatsoever.
