This case underlines that Turkey is not culturally part of Europe and does not belong in the EU as it would export its increasingly reactionary and Islamist worldview to Europe through immigration:
Euobserver.com said:Five Turkish transgendered people are set to go on trial on Thursday (21 October) on charges of resisting police and may face of up to three years in prison, in a case which could negatively impact the EU's yearly assessment of Turkey's progress toward accession.
According to the Ankara-based transgender rights group Pembe Hayat (Pink Life), police stopped the five in May, accused them of being prostitutes, pulled them out of their car by the hair, beat them with batons and sprayed them with tear gas.
