Turkey : Strong criticism from TGC to government: Detained journalists should be included in the execution package

Terrorism offenses should not be brought together with journalism and freedom of expression. It is unacceptable to exclude journalists working for the public’s right to receive news from the scope of the regulation.

* It is necessary and compulsory to include journalists within the scope of regulation and to ensure social peace and tranquility.

* Journalists in detention should be released immediately. Protection of the right to life is a constitutional right and duty. ”
