Dispute over inmate Osman Kavala plunges Turkey into crisis

The resigning German Chancellor Angela Merkel (67) paid a nice farewell visit to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (67). And the governments of the two countries are already in a great dispute again. The reason: the way the Turkish government deals with the entrepreneur, human rights activist and patron Osman Kavala (64).

Kavala has been in prison for four years. There are many allegations against him, but none. Pressure from the EU and from ambassadors from ten countries completely angered Erdogan and hardened the fronts. Blick explains how this came about and what the consequences are.
