Washington – 3 Şubat 2014 – Freedom House tarafından bugün açıklanan raporda, hükümetin eylemleri konusunda kamuoyunda yürütülen tartışmayı daraltmak ve hükümetin iddialarına muhalefet eden gazeteci ve medya kuruluşu sahiplerini cezalandırmak için Türkiye hükümetinin medya üzerindeki ağırlığını orantısız bir şekilde kullanarak ülkedeki siyasi ve sosyal kutuplaşmayı daha da derinleştirdiği sonucuna varılmıştır.

Freedom House strongly urges the Chinese government to drop the possible criminal prosecution of human rights activist Guo Feixiong and to release him immediately and unconditionally. Freedom House further urges the United States and other democratic governments to press Chinese authorities for Guo’s immediate release.
