Novelist Aslı Erdoğan receives Erich Maria Remarque peace prize in Germany

Turkish novelist Aslı Erdoğan, who was released after 132 days in prison due to links to the pro-Kurdish Özgür Gündem daily and recently was given her passport back, on Friday accepted the Erich Maria Remarque peace prize in Germany.

Expressing her happiness at being in Germany for the ceremony, Erdoğan said that “180 writers in Turkey are still in jail and unable to go abroad,” the T24 website reported.
