Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has pressed to fully investigate the killing of  high-profile Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul.

But journalists like Dundar and press advocates say that Erdogan’s demands for truth and openness in the case belie the strategy he has used – ruthlessly and effectively – in one of the world’s most sweeping crackdowns on press freedom. Some Erdogan critics note pointedly that Khashoggi, a former royal court insider turned Saudi government critic, fled his own country because of constraints on freedom of speech and diminished tolerance for dissent.
