Exiled Turkish journalist to denounce ‘violations’ in Spain, says foregin minister
Alfred Bosch says Can Dündar is very “unhappy” after not being able to enter Spanish court and observe independence trial
Catalonia’s foreign affairs minister Alfred Bosch met with Turkish journalist Can Dündar during his trip to Berlin, where the dissident resides since leaving his country to go into exile.
Bosch said that Dündar, a vocal critic of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, committed himself to spread the word on the political situation in Catalonia, as well as the trial against pro-independence leaders in Madrid.
“He says he totally understands us,” said Bosch, and added that Dündar would “denounce the injustices” going on in Catalonia.
The minister also explained that many people in Germany “don’t understand how a legal process of this kind [the independence trial] can have so many irregularities.” While he acknowledged that Germany already has “enough problems” to get involved in the independence conflict, Bosch stressed that the country has "great respect for human rights and justice.”
