ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — A former television presenter was detained by police on Tuesday for posting a tweet suggesting a cover-up in a government corruption scandal, Turkish media reports said, in a new case highlighting deteriorating media freedoms in the country.
Sedef Kabas told the Radikal news website that she was being questioned after telling her Twitter followers not to forget the name of a judge who dropped a corruption and bribery probe earlier this year. She said police had seized her laptop computer, her IPad and telephone. The government didn’t immediately confirm Kabas’ detention, which several private media companies have reported.
