AFP , Tuesday 10 Nov 2015

The EU accused Turkey on Tuesday of backsliding on the rule of law, rights and the media, calling on the new government to take urgent action in a sensitive report that Brussels held back until after elections.

"The report emphasises an overall negative trend in the respect for the rule of law and fundamental rights," said a summary of the report's key findings by the European Commission, the EU's powerful executive arm.
