A journalist for Etkin News Agency (ETHA), Adil Demirci, was taken into custody following a police raid on his flat in Istanbul. Demirci had arrived from Germany to Istanbul only a few days ago.
The Federation of Refugee Workers in Europe (AGİF) released a written statement calling for the immediate release of Demirci, saying the following;
“A Turkish and German citizen, Adil Demirci works as a social scientist in Germany and fights for equal social and political rights for refugees. We will make every effort for him and will expose this attitude of the Turkish state unless he is released immediately.”
