Another journalist jailed in Turkey

A Turkish court jailed a cameraman working for TV10, a banned Alevite TV channel, in Istanbul.

Kemal Demir, who was detained on November 25, appeared in court along with Kemal Karagoz, a fellow journalist, on Saturday. Demir was arrested for “supporting a terrorist organization” and sent to prison.  

Karagoz was released but he will face trial without arrest.

Police raided several homes in Beyoglu, Sariyer, Kagithane, Esenyurt, Gaziosmanpasa, Sultangazi, Sultanbeyli and Umraniye neighbourhoods and Demir was detained along with nine others on November 25.
