Hürriyet Newspaper’s website published a news on April 10, 2017 with the headline of “Conspicuous number of voting in abroad ballot boxes” and placing a video claiming that it shows the crowd of the voters before the ballot boxes. Video with the logo of Doğan News Agency (DHA) was also used in websites such as Haberler.com, Artı49, Sondakika with the headline of “Crowd in the last day of voting for citizens living outside Turkey”.
Hürriyet’s news about “Crowd in the ballot boxes abroad” and the area showing voters in the first 35 seconds of the video does not reflect reality. Video belongs to commemoration held on April9, 2017 for the Stockholm terror attack on April 7, 2017.
