During the 2013 protests in Turkey, a camera man for IMC was attacked with a tear gas cartridge fired directly at him, and IMC's Gökhan Biçici (editor of Emek Dünyası) was beaten and detained.
It was shut down under the emergency statutory decree issued in the aftermath of the July 15th failed coup d'état, alongside 11 other television and 11 radio stations, on 4 October 2016 when police raided the television station's headquarters in Istanbul.
