Yeni Şafak newspaper made an extensive coverage on Mi Minör, saying that it was the “rehearsal of a civil coup attempt”.

“I owe an acknowledgment to Yeni Şafak newspaper for taking theaters this seriously. It is no longer possible to create a societal response through theaters,” Memet Ali Alabora said, according to BIA News Desk.

Memet Ali Alabora was reported to have filed a lawsuit against the newspaper, saying that their coverage on Gezi Resistance protests violated his personality rights.
