PRESS FREEDOM UNDER THREAT IN TURKEY

Must read

AEJ Int. and many of its national sections let the colleagues in Turkey know that they support their campaign to oppose the assaults on press freedom in Turkey. ‘It is shocking that the persecution of journalists is getting worse and high time that populations and governments should pay more attention to it as a threat to democratic life’ AEJ Media Freedom Representative William Horsley wrote.

Also the European Parliamentary Journalists’ Association (EPJA) in Strasbourg deplores the recent arbitrary arrest of numerous journalists in Turkey and requests the Council of Europe to call on the Authorities in Turkey, current chair of the CoE’s Committee of Ministers, to respect freedom of the press, one of the basic requirements of a democratic society.
