The Ankara Prosecutor's Office has recently launched an investigation into two journalists from the Zaman daily, İsmail Altunsoy and columnist Turhan Bozkurt, on the grounds that they "insulted" a businessman in reporting on mining licenses being obtained faster by pro-government businessmen. Altunsoy and Bozkurt, who recently wrote about the process of giving firms permits to explore mines, emphasized in the reports and columns that after the Office of the Prime Ministry became the only authority to provide mining licenses to companies in 2012, certain pro-government businessmen, including Abdullah Tivnikli, received permission for mining more than other businessmen and companies. In response to the criminal complaint filed by Tivnikli, Bozkurt told Today's Zaman that he will continue to report what is accurate. Following the complaint, the Ankara Prosecutor's Office also banned access to the reports and columns in question, which Bozkurt defined as censorship. The report on the mining license permits revealed that while several pro-government companies were provided these licenses within days, many others, despite their continual efforts, faced an endless process that extended to one or two years and ultimately were not given permission to operate the mines as they had requested.
