The foreign minister has accused Berlin of not understanding the coup's impact on Turkey. In a statement given to DW, jailed journalist Deniz Yücel took a jab at him for being "unhappy" over the lack of an indictment.
The German journalist has called on Berlin to "stand up for the victims of human rights violations" in Turkey. A court has blocked Tolu from leaving Turkey pending a trial over alleged membership in a terror group.
German-Turkish journalist Deniz Yücel, jailed in Turkey, has been moved from solitary confinement, according to media reports. He was detained in February and accused of spreading terrorist propaganda.
