Turkey says Europe's new trend is using journalists as agents

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday a trend had begun in Europe for intelligence agencies to use journalists as agents.

Commenting on the case of German-Turkish journalist Deniz Yucel, whom Turkey arrested in February on a charge of spreading terrorist propaganda, Cavusoglu said it was a matter for the courts.

“Our independent judiciary is carrying out the process. The judiciary will make the decision on Yucel,” Cavusoglu told a news conference with his German counterpart. Source: Reuters
