Expression Interrupted

Journalists and academics bear the brunt of the massive crackdown on freedom of expression in Turkey. Scores of them are currently subject to criminal investigations or behind bars. This website is dedicated to tracking the legal process against them.

Executives and columnists of the shuttered Zaman daily indicted for “attempting to overthrow the government and constitutional order”

On April 11, a Turkish prosecutor submitted an indictment  to a Turkish court, charging 30 former Zaman columnists and executives with “attempting to overthrow the constitutional order, the Turkish Parliament and the government of the Republic of Turkey.”

The prosecutor seeks three aggravated life sentences for each of the suspects. Additionally, he has asked for up to 15 years in prison on charges of “membership in an armed terrorist organization.”

Out of the 30 columnists and executives who are named in the indictment, 21 suspects -- Mümtazer Türköne, Şahin Alpay, Ali Bulaç, Ahmet Metin Sekizkardeş, Ahmet Turan Alkan, Alaattin Güner, Cuma Kaya, Faruk Akkan, Hakan Taşdelen, Hüseyin Belli, Hüseyin Turan, İbrahim Karayeğen, İsmail Küçük, Mehmet Özdemir, Murat Avcıoğlu, Mustafa Ünal, Onur Kutlu, Sedat Yetişkin, Şeref Yılmaz, Yüksel Durgut and Zafer Özsoy -- are currently imprisoned. Others, namely Ahmet İrem, Ali Hüseyinçelebi, Süleyman Sargın, Osman Nuri Arslan, Osman Nuri Öztürk, Lalezar Sarıibrahimoğlu, Nuriye Ural and Orhan Kemal Cengiz, are not imprisoned. Sarıibrahimoğlu and Ural were kept in prison for three months as part of the same investigation and later released. Cengiz, although a suspect in the investigation, was not kept under arrest.

Zaman writer and academic İhsan Dağı was described as “fugitive” in the indictment.

The Chief Prosecutor’s Office has formally approved the indictment, which was referred to the İstanbul 13th High Criminal Court. The court now has 15 days to review the document and either accept or reject it. In case it is accepted, the trial of the suspects will begin in the period ahead.

Italian journalist detained in Hatay

On April 10, an Italian journalist and documentary filmmaker visiting the Reyhanlı district of Hatay province was detained by police.

The journalist, Gabriele Del Grande, was reportedly in Reyhanlı to work on a book he was writing about the Syrian civil war and atrocities of the Islamic State.

Del Grande, a reporter for ANSA news agency and for the Italian daily La Repubblica, was detained at a checkpoint located at the entrance to Reyhanlı.

The police have not given any information as to what possible charges he might face.

Neo-nationalist news website Ulusal Kanal reported on April 11 that the Italian journalist would be deported in 48 hours, citing police sources.

İHA reporter in Dink probe released

A reporter for the news agency İHA from Samsun province, who was arrested on March 28 in relation with the Hrant Dink murder trial, was released on April 8. The journalist, apparently, was arrested in relation with the publication of photographs of Ogün Samast, Dink’s assassin, in which he appears with members of the police force.

Currently there are 141 journalists under arrest or serving a conviction in Turkey’s prisons. More than a dozen are being held in custody. The full list can be viewed here.

Former Bianet editor sentenced to prison

On April 9, Yunus Önal the former Kurdish language editor for Bianet, was sentenced to six years and three months in prison on charges of “membership in an armed terrorist organization.”

Bianet reported that the sentence was based on Önal’s dancing to the tune of “Oremar” -- a motivational song for Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants --; attending a press conference held in support of education in Kurdish language and a witness statement.
