Good post. I read this the other day.

"We call on Turkish authorities to release Sadiye Eser and end the practice of jailing journalists for covering critical or opposing viewpoints," CPJ Europe and Central Asia Program Coordinator Nina Ognianova said from New York. "Instead of adding new cases to the already outrageously long roster of journalists behind bars, Turkey must focus on reforming its deeply flawed legal system without delay."

Except they just reformed their legal system last year (or year before) and it is pretty terrifying to imagine any more of their future attempts at reform.
