No end for ‘insulting Erdoğan’ investigations

Cafer Solgun, columnist for the daily Meydan, happened to be the latest journalist to be criminally investigated for “insulting” Recep Tayyip Erdoğan by his work. However, the related column belongs to somebody else and Solgun’s name was printed on it by mistake. The daily reported that they have corrected this mistake and apologized to their readers on both print and online but apparently the prosecutor did not see the correction.
