President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan accused Yücel of being a German agent and a representative of the terrorist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) on many occasions.

“In the past few days another journalist from another country was detained. He took photos of our military bases and top secret places and shared them after crossing into Iraq. When we started an investigation into him, they said ‘How can you arrest a journalist?’ You can react if he was detained for journalistic activities,” added Çavuşoğlu.

French photojournalist Mathias Depardon was detained on May 8 after photographing the local scenery in Turkey’s southeastern Batman province, has been waiting to be deported in the Gaziantep Immigration Authority in the Oğuzeli district of Gaziantep.
