Turkish weapons ‘heading to end in ISIS hands’
1 December 2015
Anger over the arrest of two prominent journalists is gathering steam in Turkey. Police used pepper spray to push back protesters in Ankara rallying in their support… while in Istanbul, hundreds also gathered outside the newspaper’s headquarters in a show of solidarity. RT’s Ilya Petrenko was at the newspaper’s headquarters on what’s been dubbed the black day of the press in Turkey.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Biased court fears cause newspaper boss to quit
Tuesday 16th August 2016
PERSECUTED Turkish newspaper editor Can Dundar said yesterday he was resigning as he no longer had faith in the judiciary after last month’s failed coup.
An Istanbul court sentenced the editor of the Kemalist Cumhuriyet daily to five years in prison in May for publishing photos of National Intelligence Organisation agents driving a convoy of arms to terrorists in Syria.
Mr Dundar was bailed pending appeal and is now believed to be in Germany.
He wrote in his farewell editorial yesterday that he would not return, as the draconian emergency powers assumed by Recep Tayyip Erdogan since the coup meant he would not get a fair hearing.
“From now on, what we face would not be the court but the government,” he said. “To trust such a judiciary would be like putting one’s head under the guillotine.”
Turkish police raided three major courts in Istanbul yesterday with warrants for the arrest of 173 prosecutors and other judicial staff suspected of involvement in the putsch.
