T24 reporter Demishevich beaten by police
ISTANBUL (DİHA) - Michelle Demishevich, a reporter for news website T24, was attempting to report on a press conference in Istanbul when plainclothes police beat her.
Yesterday, a press conference was held outside the Belgian Consulate General in Istanbul to support Turkish Belgian MP Mahinur Özdemir (who was expelled from her party for genocide denial). Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's daughter Sümeyye Erdoğan was also present at the press conference.
As T24 reporter Michelle Demishevich was trying to report on the press conference, plainclothes police approached her. Although she said she was a reporter, they attacked her. Michelle plans to file charges because of the incident.
