Ali Fuat Yılmazer, the former chief of the intelligence unit at the Istanbul Police headquarters who had been detained following the 2013 government corruption probe, was sentenced to 1 year and 6 months in prison for allegedly insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Wednesday.

He is accused of insulting Erdoğan during a TV program, aired on March 19 and 22, 2014.

Yılmazer was first imprisoned following corruption probes in late 2013 implicating then-Prime Minister Erdoğan’s government and is charged of having committed a range of crimes, from illegal wiretapping to involvement in the murder of Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink in 2007.

Yılmazer’s two daughters were also arrested over their alleged ties to the Gülen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding the July 15 coup attempt in late March, this year.
