Cicek Otlu, the chairman of the Socialist Party of the Oppressed (ESP) was arrested on accusations of membership to a terrorist organization on Tuesday.

Otlu had been detained as part of a Tunceli-based investigation in Ankara on Monday. During her appearance before the court, Otlu said she sees the decision as a move to block her political activities.

Turkey has jailed mostly pro-Kurdish politicians in recent times with more than 10 parliamentarians from Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) remaining behind bars for months.
