The İstanbul 64th Penal Court of First Instance on Thursday fined columnist Tuğrul Çelik TL 4,391 for “insulting” President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s son Bilal Erdoğan in an article published by the Türk Solu daily on Oct. 25, 2015.

The columnist announced the court ruling in a tweet late on Thursday, saying that he was initially given a prison sentence of 116 days and then imprisonment was converted into a fine.

He was fined in line with Article 125/1 of the Turkish Penal Code (TCK), according to which “anyone who undermining the honor, dignity or respectability of another person or who attacks a person’s honor by attributing to them a concrete act or a fact, or by means of an insult shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a term of three months to two years, or punished with a judicial fine.”
