Award-winning Turkish writer free to travel again

Multiple award-winning Turkish author Asli Erdogan is no longer trapped in her native Turkey.

Erdogan, who has a large Turkish readership, has also become internationally renowned after her arrest in August 2016 in Istanbul where she spent four months in prison in a post-coup purge. Even after her release in December 2016, her passport was seized and a travel ban issued because she’s still not cleared of “terror” charges. She has no relation to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
