The pro-government Türkiye daily has parted ways with journalist Yıldıray Oğur, who is known to be a staunch supporter of Turkey’s autocratic President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
“We have come to the end of yet another adventure. An end has been given to my articles in the Türkiye daily. I thank them for their support over the past four, difficult years,” wrote Oğur from his Twitter account on Friday.
Recently, Oğur has been accused by some pro-government journalists of being a “secret naysayer” in a referendum held on April 16 in which a constitutional reform package introducing an executive presidency in Turkey was approved. (turkishminute.com) April 29, 2017
