Turkey: Pre-election takeover of opposition media outlets a major blow to freedom of expression
Amnesty International calls on the Turkish authorities to ensure that media outlets that are part of the Koza İpek group can report freely and independently after government trustees were sent in to replace the senior management of the group yesterday. The raids are yet another shocking attack on journalists and freedom of expression in Turkey, and come just four days before a crucial parliamentary election on Sunday.
