Turkish telecoms watchdog BTK said on Friday it had not yet received a ruling by Turkeys top court ordering the removal of a two-month block on video-sharing website YouTube. The Constitutional Court on Thursday ruled that a block on access to YouTube imposed by Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogans government was a violation of rights, but nearly 24 hours after the ruling was announced the video-sharing site remained inaccessible to most Turks. The court said on Thursday that it has not yet written its full report on the issue and a source at BTK told Reuters on Friday it was not clear when the decision would arrive. This is the second time that the Constitutional Court has overturned a media ban imposed by the government.
