Turkey: Release detained journalists
Amnesty International calls on the Turkish authorities to release Cumhuriyet newspaper journalists Can Dündar and Erdem Gül who were remanded in pre-trial detention on 26 November 2015. Lawyers for the journalists applied to the Constitutional Court for their release on 6 December, after a previous application for release was rejected by a lower court. The detentions are yet another deplorable attempt by the authorities to silence dissenting voices in the Turkish press.
