Turkish politician calls Swiss law 'medieval'

BERN - A Turkish politician under investigation in Switzerland for
saying that massacres of Armenians during World War I did not amount
to genocide, said that Swiss anti-racism laws were comparable to
the "medieval Inquisition" in a newspaper interview published on
July 31. The law threatens to damage relations between Switzerland
and Turkey and should be done away with, Dogu Perincek, the leader of
the small leftist Turkish Workers Party, told the Swiss-German paper
SonntagsBlick. Perincek was questioned by police last weekend in the
Swiss town of Winterthur after allegedly saying that the Armenian
genocide was "an international lie", a remark deemed racist under
Swiss law.
