Human Rights Watch: “Vroeger werden er journalisten gedood in Turkije. Nu de hele journalistiek.”

Human Rights Watch heeft op 15 december een diepgravend artikel gepubliceerd over de toestand rond journalistiek in Turkije. Lees het hier.
Een quote: “Arrest warrants have been issued for more than 100 journalists, and, according to P24, an independent journalism platform, 149 journalists and media workers now languish in Turkish jails – all but 18 of them in pretrial detention pending trial – making Turkey once again the world leader in locking up journalists. Among these are several well-known writers and columnists, including Şahin Alpay, Nazlı Ilıcak, Ahmet and Mehmet Altan, Ali Bulaç, Aslı Erdoğan, Kadri Gürsel, Necmiye Alpay and the editor-in-chief of the opposition daily Cumhuriyet, Murat Sabuncu.”
