The leading investigative journalist Ahmet Șık, who is among those facing prosecution, attempted to deliver a defense statement and was expelled from the court.

Despite the considerable pressures, Cumhuriyet remains brave. It is the only newspaper in Turkey to have taken part in the Paradise Papers investigation into offshore wealth (the world’s second biggest data leak) revealing that the family of the Turkish prime minister has companies registered in Malta. The prime minister and his sons are now suing the newspaper.

In a separate case, the online editor of Cumhuriyet , Oğuz Güven, is facing prosecution for insulting President Erdoğan. His offense? His paper reported a lighthearted story that had already appeared in the Washington Post in 2016, which matched world leaders with the dogs they resembled.


The day after, the representative of the press freedom group Reporters Without Borders Turkey, Erol Önderoğlu, and a number of academics went on trial. The charges against them include propaganda for a terrorist organization.

...sad as it is, it demonstrate how hard Erdogan must work against an opposition that is Turkish, in defining "Turkishness".
