February 14, 2017 Turkey: PEN International, ARTICLE 19 and RSF join forces to monitor landmark hearings this week “We are deeply concerned by the lack of due process in many cases against writers in Turkey under the State of Emergency where many defendants are currently being held in prolonged pre-charge detention, have yet to see the evidence against them, have extremely curtailed access to their lawyers,” said Sarah Clarke of PEN International. “We urge the Turkish judiciary to uphold the fair trial standards guaranteed by Turkey’s Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights to which Turkey is a party”, she added. Organisation RSF_en Help by sharing this information Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit “These three cases exemplify the systematic abuse of terrorism and anti-State charges against critical journalists, said Erol Önderoğlu, RSF Turkey representative. Although this practice has been widespread for decades in Turkey, never has it been so oppressive as today, under the state of emergency. We urge once again the authorities to put Turkish legislation in line with its obligations under the European Covenant on Human Rights and the International Pact on Civil and Political Rights.” Oda TV Case Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor April 28, 2021 Find out more News TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentImprisonedFreedom of expressionCouncil of EuropeInternet News On Wednesday 15 February hearings in the cases of Oda TV trial, dating as far back as 2011 including prominent journalists, Ahmet Şık, Nedim Şener, Soner Yalçın, Barış Pehlivan and Barış Terkoğlu will take place.

The judicial proceedings come at a time of profound repression of freedom of the media with 150 journalists in prison and deep concerns about the quality of justice journalists can expect to face. “These three cases represent a wide spectrum of different viewpoints in Turkey; but what unites them is the violation of their right to freedom of expression,” said Katie Morris, Head of Europe and Central Asia Programme at ARTICLE 19. “The Turkish authorities are pursuing politically-motivated charges to prevent the media holding them to account and it is crucial that we stand together in opposing this attack on human rights,” she added.

Magazine office searched on prosecutor’s orders

first_img Reporters Without Borders today condemned as a “serious attack on investigative journalism” and a violation of European human rights law police raids on the offices of the Milan weekly Gente and the house in Rome of journalist Gennaro De Stefano on 16 August.”These searches threaten the privacy of journalistic sources and contravene rulings by the European Court of Human Rights that consider such action to violate article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights unless they can be justified by a ‘pressing social need.’ Since this case goes back three years, there is no such need,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. Police, acting on the orders of the Genoa prosecutor, were looking for documents relevant to an enquiry into street clashes during the July 2001 G-8 summit in Genoa. Material was seized from the offices of Gente, which is about to publish results of its investigation of the matter. The weekly’s editor, Umberto Brindani, and reporter De Stefano were told during the searches that their names were on a list of people being investigated for alleged illegal possession of documents.
