Due to the severe situation for freedom of the media in Turkey, and as a part of its
ongoing work, the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) invited other international
organisations to participate in a 22-24 November 2011 press freedom mission to
Turkey. The aim was to make clear to the Turkish government and politicians the view
of the international organisations, as well as to show support for the immediate release
of 63 Turkish journalists who appear to have been jailed because of their work.
On 22 November 2011, the trial of 10 detained Turkish journalists (Ahmet Şik, Nedim
Şener, Soner Yalçin, Bariş Pehlivan, Bariş Terkoğlu, Müyesser Yildiz, Doğan
Yurdakul, Yalçin Küçük, Sait Çakir and Coşkun Musluk), indicted for their alleged
support of terrorist organisations in the so-called “Ergenekon” case, was to start in
Istanbul.
