Journalists finally released after six months for exposing government torture by helicopter

Turkish military helicopters landed in Kurdistan in Turkey last year. The soldiers picked up two peasants and took off. Soon the peasants were thrown out of the chopper.

The four journalists who followed the news and wrote the beating in the hands of Turkish soldiers soon found themselves arrested for “membership in a terrorist organization.”

The journalists are from Mezopotamya News Agency (MA). The news agency itself has seen attacks from the Turkish government because it reports unbiased information from Kurdistan in Turkey. Turkish military and the government have been involved in numerous human rights abuses and war crimes in the country’s eastern part. They do not tolerate impartial reporting of such atrocities. Many reporters have been detained, beaten, and threatened by the Turkish police for the news from Kurdistan in Turkey.

They have been incarcerated for six months, awaiting trial.

In the first court session, held yesterday, they were released. However, the trial will continue
