Journalists in Turkey face up to 43 years in prison

Background summary:

  • Your only right is to remain silent. If you say anything, you could be imprisoned for decades without so much as a sham trial.
  • “[Erogan’s] government closed down by decree over 160 media outlets, most linked to the Gülen movement or Kurdish media. The number of journalists in pretrial detention on the basis of their writing and journalistic activities surged to 144 by mid-November, making Turkey once again a world leader in jailing journalists.”
  • Currently, more than a  dozen journalists at Cumhuriyet, a leading opposition newspaper in Turkey, are charged with aiding a terrorist organization, and face up to 43 years in prison.
  • More than 160 journalists have already been imprisoned in Turkey without trial, according to Reporters Without Borders (RSF).

[Prepared by an affiliated team of political scientists.]
