Deniz Yücel, who was mentioned to be an agent, releases
Die Welt correspondent Deniz Yücel, whom President Erdoğan accused to be an agent, was reportedly released.
German Die Welt newspaper announced that prisoner Deniz Yücel freed in Turkiye.
President Recep Erdoğan gave the following statements about Deniz Yücel's arrest: "Do you see Germany, don’t you? He is not arrested because of being a representative of Die Welt. This person, as a representative of PKK, as a German agent, was hid for a month in German consulate. They did not give us when we asked to be tried. When Merkel told me about this, I told them that you have terrorists in your country, when we ask them to be given to Turkiye; you say the judiciary is independent. We also now trust to our independent unbiased judgment."
