Des dizaines de journalistes ont marché dans les rues d’Istanbul et d’Ankara ce mardi 29 juin en signe de protestation contre l’arrestation du photojournaliste Bülent Kiliç qui travaille pour le compte de l’AFP.

Alors qu’il couvrait samedi dernier la marche des fiertés à Istanbul, le photojournaliste multiprimé Bülent Kiliç à été brutalement interpellé par la police turque, ont rapporté plusieurs médias internationaux dont l’AFP et la TV5 Monde.

Au cours de son arrestation, un policier a mis son pied sur le dos et le cou du photojournaliste qu’il a contraint de s’allonger contre le sol. Le travailleur de la presse a eu beaucoup de mal à respirer à cause de la violence policière dont il a été l’objet au cours de son interpellation.

Conduit au commissariat de police le plus proche du lieu, le photojournaliste a été par la suite relâché après plusieurs heures passées à la garde à vue. Celui-ci a porté plainte contre les policiers pour arrestation suivie de brutalités.

Ce mardi, plus de 80 individus, majoritairement des journalistes, se sont massés devant le gouvernorat d’Istanbul pour dénoncer la violence policière perpétrée contre le photojournaliste. Tout au long de leur rassemblement, les protestataires n’ont cessé de crier « la presse ne peut pas être muselée » et « une presse libre et un pays libre ».

À Ankara également, plus d’une vingtaine de personnes se sont réunies avec des photos de Bülent Kiliç, le montrant plaqué au sol. Les protestataires avaient aussi dans leurs mains des pancartes sur lesquelles on pouvait lire la phrase mythique de George Floyd au cours de son arrestation brutale aux États-Unis: « Je ne peux pas respirer ».   

Plusieurs organisations et personnalités du monde médiatique ont également protesté contre l’arrestation brutale de Bülent Kiliç. C’est le cas par exemple d’Esra Kocak Mayda, présidente de la branche à Ankara de l’Association des journalistes de Turquie. Celle-ci a condamné les attaques violentes en Turquie contre les journalistes dans l’exercice de leurs fonctions. « Nos collègues sont victimes de violences alors qu’ils ne font que leur travail », a-t-elle déploré.

Le représentant en Turquie de Reporters sans frontières (RSF), Erol Onderoglu a de son côté exhorté le gouvernement afin de « donner des instructions claires aux forces de sécurité pour qu’elles mettent fin à ces pratiques inacceptables et injustes avant qu’il ne soit trop tard ».

Le PDG de l’AFP, Fabrice Fries à travers une lettre adressée au gouvernement turque a « fermement protesté » contre l’arrestation de Kiliç et appelé à « enquêter sans délai sur cet incident et à prendre les mesures nécessaires pour que les policiers impliqués rendent des comptes ».

Figurée en 153ème sur une liste de 180 pays dans l’indexe annuel de la liberté de la presse de RSF, la Turquie est depuis quelques temps très réputée pour non respect de la liberté de la presse. Depuis la tentative de putsch raté en 2016, plusieurs dizaines de journalistes avaient été arrêtés sans compter la fermeture de plusieurs médias jugés hostiles au pouvoir en place d’alors.
