Deniz Yücel on a diplomatic crisis, Turkey and freedom


Deniz Yücel would “never” be extradited to Germany, Turkey’s President Erdoğan declared in spring 2017. At the time, Yücel, a German-Turkish journalist, had already spent two months in the high-security Silivri Prison near Istanbul. Ten months later he was finally released. In Agent Terrorist, Yücel reports on the harassment he endured in solitary confinement, his trial and the power of the solidarity campaign #freedeniz. At the same time, he sketches Turkey’s trajectory in recent years: from the promising new beginnings of the Gezi Park Protests to Erdoğan’s consolidation of power. Host: Louis Klamroth
