Popular video-sharing site YouTube remained blocked in Turkey on Sunday despite the country’s top court ruling that the blanket ban contravened the right to free speech.
Turkey’s constitutional court ruled Thursday that the ban on YouTube violated individual rights and freedoms, clearing the way for access to the service to be revived following a two-month ban.
“What is needed will be done after the decision reaches” the country’s telecommunications authority, he was quoted as telling local media on Sunday.
A government official said this week that access to YouTube would be restored once government agencies were informed of the court verdict.
YouTube has been banned in Turkey since March 27 after the site was used to leak a top-secret security meeting, which featured top government, military and intelligence officials discussing war scenarios inside neighboring Syria.
