ANKARA, March 21 (Reuters) - Turkey's main opposition party will file a legal challenge on Friday against a court decision to block access to Twitter, senior Republican People's Party (CHP) deputy Akif Hamzacebi told Reuters.

He also said the party would file a criminal complaint against Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan on the grounds that he was violating personal freedoms.
