Journalists threatened with assasination

Known journalists Ahmet Şık and Nedim Şener were contacted by the police and told that they are on an assassination list of a terrorist organization according to intelligence they gathered.

Ahmet Şık stated that he does not take the intelligence seriously. He said he has talked to one of the leaders of that organization (THKP/C Acilciler) and ensured that there is no such thing.

Nedim Şener wrote a column on the matter and said he does not see a reason that he would be a target but if the threat is real, it is the police’s duty to protect him.
