Jailed Turkish Professor—I Got Used to Lynching

Updated: Apr 26, 2019

Sedat Laçiner, a renowned Turkish academic and political scientist who was arrested in the wake of a controversial military coup on July 15, 2016, has stated that “I respond to what is said about me, and I don’t run from either prosecution or debate. But the accusations must be a bit rational and fair. I got used to the lynching, but at least the accusations should make sense. Have a heart! I am also a human being.”
