Turkey: 100 journalists in jail

Freedom of speech has never been the backbone of the Turkish Republic, yet with the arrival of the Islamo-Democrats to power, the situation has worsened. 

According to recent accounts, nearly 100 journalists in Turkey are in prison while 1,000 of the country's 16,000 cases pending at the European Court of Human Rights are related to media freedom.
