In August 2015, a British journalist and cameraman were travelling in Turkey, making a documentary for Vice News. As is often the case, they were working with a local agent, a “fixer” who was responsible for getting them access to the locations and subjects they wanted to include in their documentary. All three were arrested and, in September 2015, charged with deliberately aiding an armed organisation. The primary justification for the charge was reported to be the presence of sophisticated encryption software on the devices of the fixer, of a type alleged to be commonly used by terrorists.
