Turkey's top court rules that two jailed journalists be released - CNN Turk

ANKARA, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Turkey’s Constitutional Court ruled on Thursday that jailed journalists Mehmet Altan and Sahin Alpay be released, saying their rights have been violated, broadcaster CNN Turk reported.

There was no immediate confirmation from the court. Ahead of the court session, lawyers had said its decision could set a precedent for dozens of other journalists being tried in Turkey.
