3 eggs result in 11 years prison sentence request

A law student, Yigit Ergun, who was "caught" with three eggs at president Gul's visit to Istanbul University is under prosecution with a sentence of eleven years in prison. Yiğit Ergün said in the press release on behalf of the students: "AKP is trying to spread fear in universities. They are afraid of us and indeed they shall fear us as AKP members will be welcomed with eggs in universities until we obtain our rights."
