Red Bulletin issued for Ragip Zarakolu
A red bulletin has been issued for journalist and writer Ragip Zarakolu.
A red bulletin has been issued for journalist and writer Ragip Zarakolu in the case he is being accused of “aiding and abetting a terrorist organization” for a speech he gave in a Politics Academy held by the Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) in 2011.
“LET THEM BE DISTURBED, I’M MARCHING ON”
Zarakolu sent a letter to Evrensel and said he sees the extradition request as “harassment” and added: “It would seem that me continuing to defend human rights and minority rights, defending peace, expressing my ideas and writing articles disturbed some people. Let them be disturbed. I’m marching on.”
Zarakolu called on the public for awareness for his trial on September 28.
Ragip Zarakolu had been arrested in the same case in October 2011. He was released in April 2012 and has been living in Switzerland since 2013.
