A German journalist charged by Turkey with publishing terrorist propaganda and membership of a terrorist group said she would appear in an Istanbul court on Tuesday to seek her acquittal, a move she said could also help lift a travel ban imposed on her husband. German citizen Mesale Tolu was one of tens of thousands of civil servants and journalists detained in Turkey after a failed coup attempt in 2016 against President Tayyip Erdogan. In a radio interview, Tolu, 34, suggested her decision to return from Germany and appear in court would signal respect for Turkey's judicial system which in turn might facilitate the lifting of a travel ban imposed on her husband, Suat Corlu, a defendant in the same trial.
