Ban sought. Turkish authorities try to gag independent media in run-up to elections

first_img TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Follow the news on Turkey May 22, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ban sought. Turkish authorities try to gag independent media in run-up to elections News RSF_en Help by sharing this information News April 28, 2021 Find out more TurkeyEurope – Central Asia to go further April 2, 2021 Find out more With two weeks to go to parliamentary elections in Turkey, Reporters Without Borders condemns government harassment of independent media and is alarmed by a request by the Ankara prosecutor’s office on 18 May for the prohibition of several opposition media outlets.Türkçe / Read in TurkishSent to the satellite agency Turksat, a communication ministry offshoot, the request concerns news organizations that support Fethullah Gülen, the US-based leader of a popular religious movement, above all the national TV stations Samanyolu TV and Bugün TV.Condemned by many other Turkish media outlets as well as by Reporters Without Borders, this proposed prohibition would escalate the major offensive that has been under way for the past two years against Gülen and his supporters.Many news organizations have already been the targets of requests for information from the Ankara prosecutor’s office as part of a series of investigations into the Gülen movement. Zaman editor Ekrem Dumanli and Samanyolu TV chief Hidayet Karaca were among the 30 or so people who were arrested on 14 December. If the prohibition goes ahead, it would deal a devastating blow to media freedom and diversity in Turkey. Many commentators are criticizing the paranoia that the government is displaying towards the country’s leading media groups and accuse it of trying to “silence the free press.”State TV favouring government candidatesReporters Without Borders is also disturbed by the way the state-owned national TV broadcaster TRT is giving an unfair amount of air-time to the ruling party’s candidates for the 7 June parliamentary elections. With typically flagrant bias, TRT had given ruling Justice and Development Party leader Ahmed Davutoglu 1 hour and 20 minutes of coverage by mid-April against only 15 minutes for the pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP). Reporters Without Borders already condemned a “toxic climate” for the media on the eve of regional elections in a press release on 21 March, which also voiced concern about TRT’s bias.“We urge President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to think again and to refrain from targeting opposition news media,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said. “With just days to go to parliamentary elections, the authorities must respect media pluralism, which is essential for the elections to take place in a proper, democratic manner.”Growing obstacles for journalistsWhat with media blackouts, denial of accreditation and constant prosecutions, the authorities have stopped at nothing to prevent journalists from working.Two journalists with the pro-Gülen news agency Cihan were refused permission to cover a public event organized on 21 April by mobile operator AVEA with President Erdogan’s wife, Emine Erdogan, in attendance.On Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu’s orders, many outspoken media were prevented from attending a funeral on 1 April in Istanbul’s Eyüp Sultan Mosque for Mehmet Selim Kiraz, the prosecutor who had been killed the previous day after being taken hostage.Reporters from two news agencies (Cihan and Doğan), ten newspapers (Zaman, Hürriyet, Posta, Sözcü, Taraf, Millet, Cumhuriyet, Ortadoğu, Yeniçağ and Birgün) and five TV stations (Samanyolu TV, IMC TV, Kanaltürk, CNN Türk and Bugün) were turned away.This followed the reporting ban that the Prime Minister imposed on the same media while the prosecutor was being held hostage in a courthouse the day before. The daily Cumhuriyet filed suit against the prime minister before an Istanbul court on 6 April for 10,000 Turkish lira in compensation for the losses sustained as a result of the ban. The case is still under way.The daily Hürriyet has meanwhile been the target of several suits this month. The first concerned its report on Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s death sentence, which it headlined: “Entire world in shock after president elected by 52% is sentenced to death.”Claiming that it posed a grave threat to President Erdogan, his lawyer, Rahmi Kurt, filed a complaint accusing the newspaper of “inciting hatred,” “inciting armed insurrection against the government,” “condoning a crime and a criminal” and “propaganda in favour of a terrorist organization.”Condemning the complaint as a “new blow to media freedom and freedom of expression,” the Association of Turkish Journalists (TGC) criticized Erdogan’s lawyer for requesting the imprisonment of the newspaper’s managing editor, Sedat Ergin, and other senior members of its staff.Hürriyet and one of its columnists, Mehmet Yilmaz, were today ordered to pay 20,000 Turkish lira (7,000 euros) in damages to President Erdogan for a column criticizing government corruption. The head of the newspaper’s board, Vuslat Dogan Sabanci, has also been fined 10,000 lira.Authoritarian excessesMedia freedom has not stopped declining since the Dogan media group was the victim of a government-orchestrated prosecution in 2009, which prompted many journalists to start censoring themselves. In the past five years, many judicial proceedings have been brought against journalists for motives that were often murky.The “internal security reform” that President Erdogan signed into law on 3 April gave the police far-reaching powers that included the ability to arrest any individual and carry out searches without asking a judge.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its concern about this law, which opens the day for even more harassment of journalists, who can now be arrested arbitrarily without any judicial constraints.Turkey is ranked 149th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Mail bombing suspect in custody in nationwide investigation, officials say

first_imgObtained by ABC News(NEW YORK) — A suspect was taken into custody in Florida for an apparent mass mail bombing spree that targeted top Democrats and other prominent figures across the country, officials said.Cesar Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, Florida, allegedly carried out the widespread plot and triggered a nationwide manhunt, law enforcement sources told ABC News.Sarah Isgur Flores, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Justice, confirmed on Twitter Friday morning that one person is in custody.“We can confirm one person is in custody,” she tweeted, adding that the department will hold a news conference Friday afternoon.Multiple law enforcement sources told ABC News that the suspect was tracked down using a mobile phone. Authorities have recovered a cell phone, a laptop computer and other electronic devices from him, the sources said.Speaking from the White House Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump said the suspect will be prosecuted “to the fullest extent of the law.”“These terrorizing acts are despicable and have no place in our country,” the president said. “We must never allow political violence to take root in America.”Sayoc is expected to be prosecuted in Manhattan federal court, a senior law enforcement official told ABC News. He will first appear in the Southern District of Florida, where he was arrested, though it was not immediately whether that would happen on Friday, the official added.So far, authorities have recovered 13 suspicious packages in the widening investigation, with the latest targets being Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey as well as former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, sources said.The package addressed to Booker was found Friday morning at or near Opa-locka in South Florida.The package addressed to Clapper was then discovered at a United States Postal Service office in New York City, sources said. The New York City Police Department wrote on Twitter that the package was “safely removed” from the post office in midtown Manhattan.“My wife and I are away from home right now. And our neighbors have been retrieving our mail. Been very concerned about them. So in one sense, it’s kind of a relief, but it’s not a surprise,” Clapper said on CNN Friday morning. “This is definitely domestic terrorism. No question about it in my mind.”Clapper added that the targets of the suspected bomb threats — who have all been critical of Trump — won’t be deterred.“This is not going to silence the administration’s critics,” he said on CNN.The package addressed to Harris was recovered Friday from a post office in Sacramento, California, multiple sources told ABC News.Feds focus on South Florida as suspected origin of some of the packagesHarris, Booker and Clapper are among the prominent public figures who have been targeted, along with former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.Bill Sweeney, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s New York field office, said an army of agents is “fully engaged” in the probe.“This is a nationwide investigation involving multiple jurisdictions coast to coast,” Sweeney told reporters at a news conference Thursday.Everyone who has been sent the suspicious packages so far is a prominent critic of Trump, and many of them have been publicly disparaged by the president either at campaign rallies or on Twitter.None of the devices detonated, and no one was injured handling the packages, officials said.Many of the packages have the return address for Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in Florida. Authorities do not believe the congresswoman, who is the former head of the Democratic National Committee, was involved in sending any of the parcels.The various bubble-wrapped-lined manila envelopes with computer-printed labels and Forever stamps have been sent to the FBI’s lab in Quantico, Virginia, for further analysis. The devices found inside are also being examined for fingerprints and DNA.All of the devices found inside the parcels went through the U.S. postal service. They were all intercepted before they reached their intended targets, sources told ABC News on Thursday.Investigators have not determined a motive for the suspected mail bombs.A search for where the bomb components were purchasedThe FBI, Secret Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) were fanning out across the country to determine where components of the devices were purchased, which may give clues to who is responsible.X-ray photographs of the devices exclusively obtained by ABC News illustrate the critical leads investigators are now pursuing: Each device contained a digital clock, explosive powder, a battery power source and wiring to channel a spark for detonation, sources told ABC News. The devices also included glass as potential shrapnel. None of the devices exploded.“The FBI advises the public to remain vigilant and not touch, move or handle any suspicious or unknown packages,” the FBI said in a statement Wednesday evening. “We ask anyone who may have information to contact the FBI.”It’s not entirely clear whether all of the incidents are linked, but authorities said they fear other suspected bombs may have been sent out. Investigators suspect the apparent mail-bomb campaign is meant to terrorize and harm.It began with a pipe bomb to George SorosThe series of mailed explosives began Monday with the discovery of a pipe bomb in the home mailbox of billionaire philanthropist George Soros in Westchester County, New York. Soros is a Democratic supporter often criticized by right-wing groups.The following day, a package addressed to Hillary Clinton containing an explosive device was intercepted by the Secret Service at a screening facility before it reached her home in the New York City suburb of Chappaqua, also in Westchester County. Former President Bill Clinton was home at the time the package was found.Hillary Clinton, speaking at a campaign event Wednesday in Florida, said, “We are fine, thanks to the men and women of the Secret Service who intercepted the package addressed to us long before it reached our home.”“But it is a troubling time, isn’t it?” she added. “And it’s a time of deep divisions, and we have to do everything we can to bring our country together.”A package addressed to Obama containing an explosive device was intercepted by the Secret Service early Wednesday morning before it reached his residence in Washington, D.C.Later that morning, a package containing an explosive and suspicious powder was found in the mail room of the Time Warner Center in Manhattan, which is home to CNN’s New York headquarters. It was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, though he is an NBC News contributor and has no public ties to CNN.The package addressed to Brennan traveled through the U.S. mail system, two officials briefed on the investigation told ABC News. It arrived at the Radio City post office in midtown Manhattan where it was picked up per normal procedure by a private courier who delivers the mail to the CNN office and other locations, the officials said.The courier then hand-delivered all of CNN’s mail for that day, including the manila envelope with U.S. Postal Service first-class mail “forever” stamps, which feature the American flag. That’s how the package wound up in CNN’s screening and sorting mail room, the officials said.There didn’t appear to be any postal markings above the stamps, which investigators are looking into.The shops and restaurants at the Time Warner Center were briefly evacuated Thursday night as police investigated a pair of unattended packages inside the mall, which was determined to be a false alarm, according to the New York City Police Department.A suspected mail-bomb was sent to former Attorney General Eric Holder with a return address for Wasserman Schultz. The package did not reach its intended destination, and so it was sent to the congresswoman’s address on Wednesday. Investigators do not believe Wasserman Schultz was involved in sending any of the parcels.Another package containing a device addressed to Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California was found in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. A prior one addressed to Waters was intercepted earlier Wednesday by Capitol Police in Washington, D.C.Waters, one of Trump’s most outspoken critics, said the suspicious packages will not stop her from protesting the current administration.“We have to keep doing what we’re doing in order to make this country right. That’s what I intend to do, and as the young people say, ‘I ain’t scared,’” Waters told Blavity in a video interview Thursday. “We must not be intimidated to the point that we stop advocating and protesting for justice.”A package addressed to Robert De Niro was recovered from the actor’s Tribeca Productions film and television company in New York City early Thursday morning. A retired New York City Police Department anti-terrorism detective who screens the mail for De Niro saw a photo of another suspicious package on the news and realized it resembled one sent to the actor’s production office on Tuesday, the police commissioner said.The parcel, which contained a device similar to the others recovered this week, was removed by police in a bomb-containment vehicle.“I thank God no one’s been hurt, and I thank the brave and resourceful security and law enforcement people for protecting us,” De Niro said in a statement obtained by ABC News Friday. “There’s something more powerful than bombs, and that’s your vote. People MUST vote!”Philip Bartlett, head of the New York office of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, said postal police have been aggressively searching the mail system and have not found any new devices since early Thursday morning.“In terms of tracking, we have over 600,000 postal employees out there right now. We have the eyes and ears looking for these packages,” Bartlett told reporters. “I will say, in the postal network, we have found nothing in the last eight hours. So what we have so far is what we have — 10 parcels.”Later Thursday morning, two packages addressed to Biden were intercepted at different postal facilities in Delaware and removed by authorities.The parcels addressed to Booker and Clapper mark the 11th and 12th discovered.Former President Jimmy Carter has been warned to be on alert for suspicious packages being sent to him, his spokeswoman told ABC News.Suspected mail bombs appear to be political in natureBryan Paarmann, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division and Joint Terrorism Task Force in New York City, said the mailings appear to be political in nature.“The utilization of violence in order to further one’s own political agenda is unacceptable to us,” Paarmann told reporters at a news conference Wednesday. “We will turn over every rock, we will turn every corner, and we will talk to everybody that we have to in order to mitigate this threat.”Some critics of Trump said he has demonized all of those who have been sent the suspicious parcels, and claim his rhetoric may have inspired the mystery bomb-maker or -makers.White House press secretary Sarah Sanders bristled at such a suggestion. “The president is certainly not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone, no more than Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a Republican baseball field practice last year,” she said, referring to a shooting in June that seriously wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La.“The idea that this is at the hands of the president is absolutely ridiculous,” the press secretary said.Trump, meanwhile, has said his administration is “extremely angry” about the suspected mail bombs, but he is blaming the media.“A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning. “It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!”Brennan, the former CIA director whose name was on a suspected mail bomb sent to CNN, responded to Trump’s media criticism, telling the president to “stop blaming others” and “look in the mirror.”“Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, & encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful. Clean up your act….try to act Presidential. The American people deserve much better. BTW, your critics will not be intimidated into silence,” Brennan wrote on Twitter.Democratic leaders noted that most of the people targeted had been ridiculed by Trump.“We listened with great interest to the president’s remarks this afternoon,” the Democratic House and Senate leaders, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer, said in a joint statement Wednesday. “However, President Trump’s words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence.”“Time and time again, the president has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions: expressing support for the Congressman who body-slammed a reporter, the neo-Nazis who killed a young woman in Charlottesville, his supporters at rallies who get violent with protesters, dictators around the world who murder their own citizens, and referring to the free press as the enemy of the people,” the Democratic leaders wrote.
