İmamın Ordusu by Ahmet Şık

The İstanbul 12th High Criminal Court on Thursday March 24th ordered the confiscation of an unpublished book by jailed journalist Ahmet Şık.
The book called İmamın Ordusu (in English : The Army of the Imam ), which reportedly documents the influence of an Islamic group ( Fethullan Gülen ) within the police.
Police raided the offices of a publishing house and the headquarters of the Radikal daily on March 24 and seized drafts of the book, which has not yet been published.
The book was written by journalist Şık, who is currently in prison accused of membership in Ergenekon, a terrorist organization accused of working to overthrow the government.
They found a digital copy and erased it. In March 2011 Ahmet Şık, was arrested along with several other journalists as part of the so-called Ergenekon investigation, into a suspected plot to topple the government.
According to Article 28 of the Turkey Constitution, activities that put the security of the public in jeopardy cannot be tolerated within the framework of freedom of the press.
