Abstract
In one of the numerous cases against Turkey on the right to fredom of expression and the rights of journalists the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) found that the arbitrary pre-trial detention of an investigative journalist has violated the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). In Şık v. Turkey the ECtHR found that a series of articles published on the website of Cumhuriyet, in the newspaper’s print edition and in items posted on social media from the journalist’s Twitter-account produced no sufficient basis for a reasonable suspicion that the journalist had disseminated terrorist propaganda. The judgment in Şık v. Turkey of 24 November 2020 contains an analogue reasoning and outcome as the judgment in Sabuncu and others v. Turkey of 10 November 2020, another case in which the ECtHR found that the Turkish authorities had violated the rights of journalists and managers of the newspaper Cumhuriyet.
