Stating that July 24, 1908, is one of the most important turning points in the Turkish press history, Mayor Zolan celebrated the 112th anniversary of the censorship abolition in the press. Noting that the understanding of broadcasting by the principles of the press, respecting the rights and liberties of the people, and impartially and objectively will increase the trust in the press in the society, Mayor Zolan said, ''The press, which fulfils its duty with a correct and impartial understanding that respects social values, is also the greatest guarantee for the protection of the democratic social order. ''
 
Reminding the words of the founder of the Republic of Turkey, the Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, ''The press is the common voice of the nation'', Mayor Osman Zolan said, ''Our members of the press, who work without regard to overtime, for the right of our people to receive accurate and impartial news, fulfilled their duty by disregarding their lives in the pandemic process as well as in the treacherous night of the night of July 15, 2016. I heartily thank each of them. I believe that our press members will fulfil their duties completely, as it has been until today, and will continue to be the voice of our nation. ''
