Actor and columnist at Sol newspaper, Orhan Aydin was given suspended prison sentence of 11 months and 20 days for a cartoon he shared on social media.
An Istanbul court handed down the verdict on charges of insulting President Recep Tayyin Erdogan on Thursday.
Aydin’s sharing of a drawing by cartoonist Carlos Latuff on Erdogan’s trip to Cuba was among the evidence of insult.
The court also said Aydin’s another posting hinted at alleged similarities between Erdogan and Adolf Hitler. Aydin confirmed the decision on Twitter on Thursday, asking: “Is this justice, ha?”
