Turkey sentences Wall Street Journal reporter on terrorism charge

first_img Follow the news on Turkey Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsMedia independence Judicial harassmentArmed conflictsFreedom of expression Organisation News Help by sharing this information The Wall Street Journal announced on Tuesday that Albayrak, who has Turkish and Finnish dual nationality, has been sentenced in absentia to two years and one month in prison on a “terrorist propaganda” charge. She was in New York when the sentence was passed and plans to appeal. She was convicted in connection with an August 2015 article for which she went to Silopi, in southeastern Turkey, to cover fighting between government forces and members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). “We condemn this arbitrary and disproportionate sentence targeting a journalist whose only crime was to go into the field and report the facts, and thereby do her job,” RSF said. “We think the court’s decision is designed to discourage foreign journalists thinking of going to Turkey, and to restrict their activities there.” Albayrak has been working for the Wall Street Journal’s Istanbul bureau since 2010, covering Turkish politics, the situation of Syrian refugees, and Turkey’s Kurdish minority. Her conviction comes amid steadily mounting diplomatic tension between Turkey and the United States, in which both have just suspended issuing visas to the other country’s citizens. Turkey’s already worrying media situation has become critical under the state of emergency proclaimed after a coup attempt in July 2016. Around 150 media outlets have been closed, mass trials are being held and more than 100 journalists are currently in prison – a world record. Foreign journalists are no longer spared. Several dozen have been expelled in the past two years and some are still being held. They include Deniz Yücel, a journalist with German and Turkish dual nationality. Turkey is ranked 155th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Ice Causes Commuter Headaches on Long Island

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York NWS forecast map.Icy road conditions in the wake of a winter storm are creating potentially hazardous conditions across Long Island and beyond, causing headaches for commuters.Sleet that followed snow combined with subfreezing temperatures created black ice that coated roadways Tuesday evening overnight and potentially into Wednesday morning, according to Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists.“Most susceptible will be untreated surfaces…as well as bridges and overpasses,” the agency said in a special weather statement.A forecaster added that temps will remain in the 20s through the morning commute, meaning the ice could still be an issue on untreated roads after sunup.The Long Island Expressway had been temporarily closed for emergency salting between exits 68 and 73 Tuesday evening due to dangerous icing—although police and many local media outlets mistakenly reported that the LIE was closed between 49 and 73 at first.The rain after the snow washed away salt at the Route 110 and LIE exchange, which had to be retreated, according to Eileen Peters, a spokeswoman for the New York State Department of Transportation.“Slow down, a shiny road is not a good sign,” she said. “Our maintenance guys are all staying on through the night. They are monitoring the roadways.”The Long Island Rail Road was also dealing with weather-related delays, including a broken rail Tuesday morning, and urging riders to plan for extra travel time as winter delays continued Tuesday evening.Wednesday is forecast as mostly cloudy with highs near 36 and gusts up to 28 mph before dropping down below freezing again after sundown.But, temperatures are expected to warm up a little toward the end of the week, hitting a high near 43 Thursday and a high near 52 on Friday, Saturday and as high as 57 Sunday. There is also a chance of showers all three days this weekend.last_img read more
