(BIKYA MASR) “It is new information for me that there are journalists in prison in Turkey. They must release all the journalists. I’m calling on Mr. Erdogan: If there are any journalists in prison, I call for them to be released now. Turkey is a democratic country and we take it as a role model. I am sure Mr. Erdogan and his cabinet will trust freedom of expression rights,” Karman told a conference at Boğaziçi University in Istanbul yesterday.
