API Protests Against Crackdown On Turkish Media

The International Press Association strongly condemns the arrest of journalists in Turkey under the pretext that they are involved in the coup of 15 July. 

The regime of Recep Tayyip Erdogan takes on the media to conceal its autocratic character and the gradual liquidation of fundamental freedoms.

The Turkish government fears the media because it has something to hide. API calls on the Turkish authorities for the immediate and unconditional release of all detained journalists!


L'Association de la Presse Internationale condamne fermement l'arrestation des journalistes en la Turquie sous pretexte qu'ils soient impliqués dans le coup d'état du 15 juillet.

Le regime de Recep Tayyip Erdogan se prend ainsi au media pour dissimuler son charactère autocrate et la liquidation progressive des libertés fondamentales.

Le gouvernement turque craint les media parce qu'il a quelque chose à cacher. API demande aux autorités turques la libération immédiate et sans condition de tous les journalistes détenus!
