Family home of journalist Gümüş raided by the police in Adana

In the Adana province south of Turkey, police have again searched the family home of Medine Gümüş. The journalist has been searched for months for "terror propaganda".

Police forces raided the family home of Medine Gümüş, chief editor of the Radyo Dünya, which was shut down with a statutory decree. Gümüş is accused of "propaganda for a terrorist organisation".

The Gümüş family’s home in Seyhan district of Adana was raided early in the morning in the scope of an investigation by Adana Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office.

Since Medine Gümüş has been living abroad for a while, she could not be arrested. The police apparently assume that she is in Turkey. Her relatives were asked to reveal her hiding place.

The family home of Gümüş was last searched in November last year. Already at that time, the journalist was no longer in Turkey.
