CEFTUS Westminster Debate: ‘Battling the Censors: Freedom of Journalism in ‘New Turkey”

Mr Ahmet Şık is a Turkish investigative journalist, author of several books, and a trade unionist. His book ‘The Imam’s Army’, investigating the controversial Gülen movement of the Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, led to his detention for a year in 2011–2012 and the book being seized and banned. He remains under indictment in the OdaTV case of the Ergenekon trials; his cause has been taken up by English PEN, an association of writers fighting for freedom of expression.
