Turkey: Release journalists from prison
Amnesty International is concerned at the recent spate of pre-trial detentions targeting eight journalists, who join dozens of other journalists and media workers in prison for doing their jobs. Six of the eight were remanded in relation to their reporting of the death and funeral of two alleged intelligence officers from the Turkish National Intelligence Agency (MIT). Two others, Kurdish language RUDAW TV journalist Rawin Sterk Yıldız and chief editor for the news website Yakın Doğu Haber Alptekin Dursunoğlu were detained for their social media posts. Turkey must end the targeting of independent journalists with the arbitrary use of anti-terrorism and other laws and uphold the right to freedom of expression which includes the right to give and receive information.
