Police report for arrested columnist accuses more journalists

The daily Bugün reported that the police report regarding the recent arrest of their columnist Gültekin Avcı points fingers to other journalists as well. Bugün reported:

“Avcı’s arrest over the Tawhid-Salam case also opens the door for the persecution of the many other veteran journalists featured in the case file. The Tawhid-Salam investigation file contains not just Gültekin Avcı’s articles, but reports and interviews by the likes of the Washington Post’s David Ignatius, Cumhuriyet daily Editor-in-Chief Can Dündar and journalist Amberin Zaman, as well as statements by politicians such as Republican People’s Party (CHP) Deputy Chairman Sezgin Tanrıkulu.”
