Turkey must stop crackdown on journalists

“Although some journalists in Turkey have leveled criticism against the ruling system of the country, they cannot be suppressed on [the unsubstantiated] charges of being terrorists,” Esfanani said Sunday.

The lawmaker said there are 450 cases of freedom of speech violations in Turkey at the European Court of Human Rights which indicates the lack of freedom of expression in that country.

Stressing that the Turkish government should respect the rights of its people, the lawmaker said, “Supporting journalists and freedom of speech is supporting democracy, and the Ankara government should take steps in the direction of respecting the rights of journalists and reporters.”
