Turkey: DI Condemns Sacking of Prominent Journalist

Defend International is deeply concerned that the prominent Turkish newspaper columnist Mr. Kadri Gursel has been sacked from his position over a social media post, in which he reportedly criticised Turkey’s President.

DI President Dr. Widad Akrawi urged the Turkish authorities to ensure that Mr. Gursel and his colleagues are able to carry out their work under safe conditions, without hindrance, harassment or intimidation.
