English PEN, in partnership with the Centre for Turkey Studies (CEFTUS) hosted a roundtable discussion with the leading Turkish editor and journalist Can Dündar on 29 June.

Dundar and journalists discussed press freedom and the challenges to freedom of expression in Turkey.

Can Dündar is editor-in-chief of the newspaper Cumhuriyet. He is currently appealing a sentence of five years and ten months for revealing state secrets, handed down earlier this month, which has been widely criticised by human rights groups. His colleague Erdem Guül received a sentence of five years.

The two journalists were charged last November following the publication of reports claiming that  intelligence services were sending arms to jihadis in Syria.
