Turkish theatre player Jülide Kural has received a suspended 15-month sentence for standing in for a day as editor-in-chief of a pro-Kurdish daily as a part of a solidarity campaign launched against the investigations into the newspaper.

Kural was accused of having made propaganda on behalf of a terrorist organization.

The Özgür Gündem daily was accused of promoting the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Several intellectuals and journalists stood in as the symbolic editor-in-chief of the pro-Kurdish daily in solidarity with the paper as its editor was imprisoned even before the closure.
