Turkey is the biggest prison for journalists and lawyers who are specialized on Human Rights.
More than 150 journalists and several lawyers are currently imprisoned. Independent
journalism doesn’t exist anymore. The universal Human Rights press freedom and freedom of
information are consequently violated. What can the rule of law do to prevent this and how are
journalists coping with the difficult situation?
