Dutch journalist to be tried in Turkey on 'terror propaganda' charges
Indictment of Dutch journalist in Turkey heightens press freedom fears

A Turkish prosecutor has formally accused a Dutch journalist of “terrorist propaganda” and asked she be jailed for up to five years, local media have reported. The move will deepen fears over press freedom in the Nato member state.

Security forces briefly detained freelance journalist Fréderike Geerdink last month and raided her home in Diyarbakir, the largest city in Turkey’s predominantly Kurdish south-east.

The indictment, accepted by a Diyarbakir court, accuses Geerdink of posting messages on social media in favour of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers party (PKK), including a display of the group’s flag, Hurriyet Daily News reported on Monday.
