La Repubblica | 24.04.2017

L’abbraccio con la fidanzata Alexandra e con i genitori per il giornalista espulso dalle autorità turche. Decine di persone nello scalo mobilitate per l’arrivo del giornalista scarcerato dalle autorità turche. „Non mi hanno torto un capello: ma quello che è successo è illegale“

di ROSARIO DI RAIMONDO

BOLOGNA – “Adesso? Me ne vado a mangiare. Dopo lo sciopero della fame ne ho bisogno…”. Gabriele Del Grande è libero, è arrivato a Bologna con un volo della Turkish Airlines, ma non è un turista qualsiasi. Nella sala degli “arrivi” dell’aeroporto Marconi un applauso spontaneo accoglie il giornalista detenuto in Turchia dal 9 aprile, per non si sa ancora quale reato. Ad accoglierlo ci sono i genitori, amici, cronisti, telecamere, forze dell’ordine, passeggeri e curiosi. E anche il ministro degli Esteri Angelino Alfano, che esulta: “La migliore vigilia della nostra Liberazione”. “Non mi è stato torto un capello – dice Gabriele, affiancato dalla compagna Alexandra – ma quello che è successo è illegale, è una violenza istituzionale. Il mio pensiero va a tutti i giornalisti ancora in carcere, in condizioni peggiori della mia”.

Exclusive: Broken limbs, facial injuries and severe bruising found to be ‘typical injuries’ sustained by unaccompanied minors at the hands of officers in Calais, research finds

Refugees sleeping rough in and around the Calais area are subject to “endemic” levels of police brutality on a daily basis, an alarming report has revealed, amid concerns that the region is on “police lockdown” in efforts to deter refugees from the area.

Research published exclusively by The Independent shows that displaced people, including scores of unaccompanied children, are experiencing routine violence, with some reporting having limbs dislocated as a result of police beatings, while others had tear gas sprayed directly in their faces.

Our dear friend Gabriele del Grande, human rights activist, journalist and documentary filmmaker, was arrested on April 10, in Hatay / Turkey. He was doing a research for his new book-project about Syrian refugees. Since four days now, he is on a hunger strike, struggling for his freedom.

Gabriele has been active since years, monitoring deaths of refugees in the Mediterranean, on his blog ‘Fortress Europe’ and later focussing on the complexities of the war in Syria and its effects on the Syrian civil society and the refugees in Europe. All of us loved his documentary “On the bride’s side” in which he combined documentary filming with activism in his own way, struggling for another world.

ANSA.it | 18.04.2017

(ANSA) – Rome, April 18 – An Italian reporter arrested on the Turkey-Syria border April 10 phoned Italy Tuesday to say he was well but that he would start a hunger strike to demand his rights be respected tonight. „I’m well, they haven’t touched a hair on my head but I can’t phone, they seized my cellphone and belongings, although they’re not charging me with anything,“ said Gabriele Del Grande using the administrative detention centre’s landline, saying he was surrounded by four policemen.

Human rights campaigner Del Grande said he would start a hunger strike tonight „and I urge everyone to mobilise to demand my rights be respected“. He said „my documents are in order, but I have not been allowed to name a lawyer, nor have I been informed when this detention will end. „The reason for the arrest is linked to the content of my work. I have been subjected to questioning in this regard. I have been able to phone only after days of protests“.

There had been no news from the journalist since he was arrested by Turkish authorities on the Syria border eight days ago, his family said Monday.

Welt | 15.04.2017

Der Streit über die von Milliardär Soros gegründete Universität in Ungarn reißt nicht ab. Ungarns Staatschef Orbán lastet dem Amerikaner nun sogar an, der europäischen Flüchtlingskrise finanziell Vorschub zu leisten.

Seit Wochen führt der ungarische Ministerpräsident Viktor Orbán eine Kampagne gegen regierungskritische Zivilorganisationen sowie den US-Milliardär George Soros. Nun legt er in einem Interview der regierungsnahen Tageszeitung „Magyar Idök“ vom Samstag weiter nach – und stellt eine Verbindung zwischen dem Streit über die von Soros gegründete Central European University (CEU) in Budapest und der Flüchtlingskrise her.

„Die ganze Sache dreht sich darum“, erklärte der rechtskonservative Regierungschef, „dass George Soros, vor der Öffentlichkeit verborgen und unter Einbeziehung seiner ungarischen Organisationen, mit enormen Geldern die illegale Einwanderung fördert.“

Gabriele del Grande wurde vor der Grenze zu Syrien von der türkischen Polizei in Gewahrsam genommen. Der Grund blieb unklar.

Christian Jakob

Die Türkei hat einen weiteren westlichen Journalisten festgesetzt: Am Montag stoppte die Polizei den Italiener Gabriele del Grande in der Provinz Hatay nahe der Grenze zu Syrien. Das berichtete die italienische Nachrichtenagentur Ansa unter Berufung auf Diplomaten in Ankara.
Der Autor und Dokumentarfilmer del Grande war demnach auf dem Weg nach Syrien. Er soll nun nach Italien abgeschoben werden, berichtete die italienische Zeitung LaPresse. Der Grund für die Festnahme des 35-Jährigen blieb unklar. Türkische Medien mutmaßten, del Grande habe womöglich die seit einiger Zeit nötige gesonderte Akkreditierung für die Grenzregion nicht beantragt. Die italienische Regierung forderte seine sofortige Freilassung.
