Can Dündar nominated for the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize

Can Dündar, the former editor of the Turkish centre-left Cumhuriyet newspaper is one of four nominees for this year’s prestigious Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought. The prize “is awarded to individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to the fight for human rights across the globe, drawing attention to human rights violations as well as supporting the laureates and their cause.”

Dündar and his Ankara bureau chief Erdem Gül were arrested in early 2015 after the paper published pictures allegedly showing trucks delivering weapons from Turkey into Syria. They were held for 92 days, threatened with life imprisonment on espionage and and terror charges and publicly threatened by Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

After surviving an assassination attempt, Dündar resigned from the newspaper and is now believed to be living in Germany, fearful of returning to Turkey which has seen an unprecedented clampdown on the media following the failed military coup

Panos photographer Guy Martin spent a number of days shadowing Dündar at home and in his office in the month before the attempted coup and gained unique insight into the life and struggle of this courageous journalist and the challenges facing Turkish media more broadly.
