Alternate FM: death penalty issue in Turkey serves internal purposes

The debate on the reintroduction of the death penalty in Turkey may serve only internal purposes, Alternate Foreign Minister Nikos Xydakis said in an interview with Praktorio 104.9 FM on Tuesday.

He added that a basic principle in Roman law is that a law voted cannot be applied retroactively.
"Most of what is heard and announced serve internal purposes. The issue, of course, is unpredictable and has a dynamic that can be alarming," he underlined.
