Orhan Pamuk

Orhan on haastettu oikeuteen Turkissa, koska hän on sveitsiläisessä lehdessä "Tages Anzeiger" 6.2.2005 kritisoinut sitä, että turkkilaiset ovat syyllistyneet 1915-17 armenialaisten joukkomurhaan ja 1980-luvulta alkaen 30000 kurdin kuolemaan.
Salman Rushdie asettuu Timesissa 14.10.2005 voimakkaasti puolustamaan Orhania.

Salman: "However, in spite of being a state that has ratified both the United Nations International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the European Convention on Human Rights, both of which see freedom of expression as central, Turkey continues to have and to enforce a penal code that is clearly contrary to these very same principles, and, in spite of widespread global protests, has set the date for Pamuk’s trial. It will begin, unless there is a change of heart, on December 16."
