|Name||Publishers on Trial: Freedom of Expression in Turkey in the context of EU Accession|
KHRP sent a trial observation mission to Turkey in February 2007 to observe the trial of Publisher Songül Özkan. Özkan faces charges relating to the former Turkish Penal Code for ‘openly inciting people to hatred' by publishing the book Kürt Isyanlari (Kurdish Uprisings), written by Kurdish journalist and author Ahmet Kahraman. The report concludes that the initiation of the trial is illustrative of the generally repressive atmosphere which publishers are currently facing in Turkey , and that the right to freedom of expression, despite recent amendments to relevant Turkish legislation, is not yet guaranteed in Turkey .
