Turkey: permit granted
Morning Star News
After a ﬁve-year court battle, a US evangelist, singled out by Turkey’s Ministry of the Interior for deportation because of his outreach activities, was in January granted a residency permit to stay in Turkey.
During the five years, David Byle, cofounder of the Holy Book Information Association, also known as the Bible Correspondence Course in Turkey (BCC-Turkey), was unsure from month to month if he might be detained and deported. Byle attributes the visa coming through to God’s power, but also said that it is an example of the system in Turkey – byzantine though it may be – working properly.
