There are a couple of reasons. Here just the short version:
(1) No human being should be accused because of writing or publishing an personal opinion.
(2) Who else should report about the political power or decisions of Mr. Erdogan if not journalists?
(3) Last but not least: As a mother of a two year old little one her fate touches the fate of the child too. There are some of the most important time-corridors of the developement of childs psyche, basal confident and mental capabilities, where the contact to the mother in familiar surrounding is absolutely needed. The unworthy treatment of Mesale Tolu through the turkish authorities is the best way of carrying violence further into the next generation. Is this really the aim of politics in the 21. century?

Obviously the turkish government did not present a juristical reason until now (2. June) for keeping her locked in prison. I do not know Mesale Tolu personally. But I know about her dignity as a human being and of the value of the freedom of speech and the written word.
