Turkey – Freedom of the press – Trial of Can Dündar and Erdem Gül (Istanbul, April 1, 2016)


The trial of Can Dündar and Erdem Gül, editor-in-chief and Ankara bureau chief of the Turkish daily paper Cumhuriyet, resumed today.

Our representatives and those of our partners were unable to attend the hearing after the Turkish judicial authorities decided to continue behind closed doors.

France reiterates its dedication to the freedom of expression and freedom of the press worldwide, as these are vital components of the democratic debate.
