Call for provisional release of Kurdish journalist accused of collaborating with PKK

first_imgNews RSF_en Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Organisation Reporters Without Borders today called for the release on bail of Rüstu Demirkaya, a reporter with the Kurdish news agency Diha, who was placed in custody in Tunceli prison in eastern Turkey on 14 June on a charge of collaborating with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), also known as Kongra-Gel.Demirkaya was reportedly arrested along with four other people during a military operation against PKK members in the Tunceli region on 11 June. A former PKK member supposedly accused him of contacts with PKK activists in the neighbouring village of Sakak last autumn, when he allegedly gave them a laptop and 10 virgin CD-ROM disks and briefed them about an military operation then under way. He faces up to 12 years in prison.“We call for Demirkaya’s release on bail until his trial,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His release would not affect the investigation as the police know where he lives and there is no danger of evidence disappearing as the only evidence against him is an informant’s statement.”The press freedom organisation added: “We would like to point out that journalists working for pro-Kurdish media are often accused of being PKK collaborators because they have covered military operations.”Demirkaya’s lawyer, Baris Yildirim, formally requested his provisional release on 19 June.Demirkaya is already facing a sentence of four and a half years in prison for covering the August 2005 release of a Turkish soldier kidnapped by the PKK the previous month. Three other local journalists, including Reuters correspondent Ferit Demir, covered the event. Their trial is due to start in September the 8th 2006.

Photograph Liam Burke/Press 22THE Studio Classroom exhibition, currently on show in the main lobby at Mary Immaculate College, features work produced by children at three local primary schools through an innovative new project.The schools, St Mary’s Primary School, Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School and Presentation Primary School, worked with MIC and three artists in a scheme that aims to bridge the field of art education and the world of contemporary art.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Working with Anne-Marie Morrin of the Visual Arts Education at MIC, the TED Project delivered a pilot six-week art initiative with three artists; Jean Cleary, Julie Brazil and Kate McElroy; working closely with the schools and children through online residencies.Prof Michael A Hayes, President of MIC said: “Connecting the artists with the primary schools has demonstrated the use of virtual technology to connect studio and classroom where exciting collaborative arts practice evolved.”The primary focus of the Studio Classroom was to promote innovative ways for artists, primary school teachers and pupils to engage and respond to art practice.This project connected artist studios directly into the primary classrooms and promoted innovative ways in which children can respond to artist work by working directly with the artist.Describing the process further Anne Marie Morrin, Visual Arts lecturer at MIC, said: “Working directly from their studios the artists transported the child into an exploratory mindset where experimenting was encouraged and risks embraced. The art sessions moved away from the traditional art class setting where emphasis is placed on the acquisition of skills through the manipulation of materials and tools.“Instead consideration was given to the starting point where the exploration of ideas and how these ideas can be transformed into visual forms.”It is hoped that the project will help develop a model for new approaches for artist, teachers, and children to work together in the teaching and learning of art in schools, and how technology can help support the creative process.
