Can Dündar mottok Golden Pen of Freedom

(Oslo 08.06.17) Ved åpningen av WAN-IFRAs verdenskongress i går ble tyrkiske Can Dündar overrakt The Golden Pen of Freedom. 

Dundar kvitterte med en gripende tale hvor han blant annet sa:
"Journalists need courage because there is a cloud of fear hanging over them - fear is everywhere, and it is so powerful,” og videre sa han: “I come from the biggest prison for journalists in the world: currently 150 of my colleagues are behind bars in Turkey, and imprisoning one member of the press intimidates hundreds of others.”
