In September , while banned from written communications, Altan produced an essay The Writer's Paradox in which he says: 'I am writing these words from a prison cell But wait. Before you start playing the drums of mercy for me listen to what I will tell you They may have the power to imprison me but no one has the power to keep me in prison. I am a writer. As the trial began, many authors spoke out in support of Altan.
Neil Gaiman said "I hope that everyone who can read, whatever their politics, reads Ahmet Altan's response to his imprisonment. Repressive regimes hope that if they lock up writers they are also locking up ideas.
This will always fail. For a government to imprison a writer for doing this is to attack, not only freedom of speech, but freedom of the imagination. It is a backward, oppressive and ultimately futile gesture that can only lead to greater and more damaging social unrest. On 16 February , Ahmet, along with his brother Mehmet Altan , was sentenced to life imprisonment. The book was longlisted for the Baillie Gifford Prize for non-fiction.
On 4 November Altan was sentenced to 10 years and 6 months imprisonment by the court of cassation, but then the court ordered his release on probation. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Kocasinin bir baska erkekle kiyaslandiginda boylesine gucsuz ve onemsiz gorunmesinden ici aciyordu; Haluk o siradan ihtirasi ve tekduze yakinmalariyla onu sikiyor, hic tanimadigi bir baska erkegi neredeyse hastalikli bir sekilde ozlemesine neden oluyordu. Bir baska erkegi ozlemesine neden oldugu icin kocasini hic affetmeyecekti ve affetmedi. Haluk'un belki bir daha hic hatirlamadigi o kisa ve onemsiz konusma, aralarindaki iliskiyi onarilmasi cok zor bir bicimde sarsiyor, yillar icinde insa edilmis bircok duygusal bagi koparmasa da onemli olcude zedeliyordu. Bu duygularinin arasinda, bir yandan da kocasina nasil haksizlik yaptigini fark ediyor, utancina bir de haksizlik yaptigini dusunmenin huzursuzlugu ekleniyordu.
