An İstanbul court on Monday ordered the continuation of the pretrial detention of 6 journalists and members of the media, including Ahmet Altan, Mehmet Altan and Nazlı Ilıcak, at the third hearing in their trial, and adjourned proceedings until Dec 11.

In a case heard by the İstanbul 26th High Criminal Court has denied a request to release the detainees.

The journalists in both trials are charged with involvement in a coup attempt last year, membership in the Gülen movement, which is accused of being behind the failed coup, aiding a terrorist organization, “attempting to overthrow the constitutional order through violence or force,” “attempting to overthrow or interfere with the work of the national assembly through violence or force” and “attempting to overthrow or interfere with the work of the government.”

Altans and Ilicak have been under arrest more than 400 days now.
