Sunday, July 25 2010

Kurdish Info - 24 July is a holiday for journalists in Turkey since censorship was abolished 102 years ago today. Contemporary Journalists Association (ÇGD) asked PM of Turkey that if he knows about 47 journalist who are in prison for writing against government and 700 journalists as well who are currently being tried due to the same ‘crime’. On the other hand, celebration of the Journalists’ Day generally seems tarnished since no freedom of expression in Turkey, said head of ÇGD.
