German journalist in jail in Turkey for a year without trial

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Istanbul (dpa) - Rights group Amnesty International criticized the Turkish authorities for the jailing of German journalist Deniz Yucel, who has been behind bars for one year without an indictment.

Yucel was taken into custody on February 14, 2017. He was later accused of terrorism charges and espionage. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan denounced him as an "agent."

The correspondent for Die Welt newspaper, working in Turkey since 2015, has denied all charges against him.

The arrest has strained ties between Berlin and Ankara. German politicians have denounced Turkey, saying the arrest without trial is a violation of basic constitutional and international rights.

Amnesty‘s chief in Germany, Markus Beeko, said the case amounts to "punishment without trial."

Yucel was in solitary confinement for much of the last year, though this treatment ended in December.
