OSCE Special Representative expresses attitude over Azerbaijani journalist’s deportation from Turkey
Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 7
By Sabina Ahmadova - Trend:
News about an Azerbaijani journalist's deportation from Turkey is regrettable, OSCE Special Representative on Freedom of the Media, Dunja Mijatovic wrote on Twitter.
She was commenting on the deportation of an Azerbaijani journalist working for the Turkish newspaper Today`s, Zaman Mahir Zeynalov from Turkey.
Mijatovic referred to this as being another wrong action in Turkey's attitude towards press freedom.
Earlier, Turkish online newspaper İnternethaber reported that the Azerbaijani journalist was deported from Turkey for constant accusations against the government and in particular Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The newspaper published several articles by Zeynalov on relations between the Turkish government and Al-Qaeda terrorist organisation. Zeynalov is banned to enter the country upon the Turkish Interior Ministry's decision.
