Turkey - Set Journalists Free sign now

Dear Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan,

We, employees and representatives of Hungarian organizations, journalists, public figures and individuals living and/or working in Hungary, who stand up for human rights and freedom of the media, join the call made by the Turkish Journalists’ Union and the European Federation of Journalists for the immediate and unconditional release of journalists jailed in Turkey.

Over 40 Turkish journalists are currently in prison awaiting trial on charges of violating the Turkish penal code or anti-terror laws as a result of their journalism. The only thing they are guilty of is fulfilling their journalistic duties. Yet they have been put behind bars.

We urge your Government to end this climate of fear and intimidation facing Turkish journalists and to immediately reform the country’s legal system to protect journalists’ rights to respect freedom of expression.

There can be no free society without the freedom of Journalism.


Hungarian Organizer: Mate Andras Stiglincz, student of Corvinus University of Budapest
