#FREETURKEYJOURNALISTS

ABOUT THE PLATFORM

The #FreeTurkeyJournalists platform is an effort to promote and defend free expression in Turkey by calling for every journalist accused of a crime to receive due process and for the release of anyone detained for practicing journalism. The website is maintained by the International Press Institute (IPI – a global network of editors, media executives and leading journalists dedicated to protecting media freedom.

The #FreeTurkeyJournalists platform is intended to illustrate the severity of Turkey’s crackdown on journalists by highlighting the cases of individuals who have been detained and who face criminal charges. It further serves as a call for Turkey’s government to produce solid evidence supporting any accusation that a journalist has engaged in criminal activity, to give any journalists accused of a crime a full and fair opportunity to defend themselves before an impartial tribunal, and to release all journalists in prison as a result of their work.
