Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan filed a criminal complaint Friday against a French magazine over a cover accusing him of “ethnic cleansing,” according to the state-owned Anadolu Agency.
The filing was the latest example of efforts by the Erdogan government to restrict press freedoms in Turkey.
The complaint filed against the French magazine Le Point’s director, Etienne Gernelle, as well as the editor in chief of the publication’s international section,
Romain Gubert, was based on the cover of the October 24 issue, which depicts Erdogan saluting under the headline “The Eradicator,” with the subtitle “Ethnic cleansing: the Erdogan method.”
Prosecutors alleged the cover constituted an insult to the president, a crime under Turkish law commonly used to target journalists in Turkey, according to Emma Sinclair-Webb, Turkey director for Human Rights Watch, an international NGO that conducts research and advocacy for human rights.
