A Turkish prosecutor is seeking up to five years in prison for imprisoned Kurdish politician Selahattin Demirtaş, former co-chair of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP),  over a social media post dating back to on Nov 2013, the Mezopotamya news agency reported on Friday.

In the indictment, Demirtaş is accused of “disseminating propaganda for a terrorist organization” due to his tweet that “praised the leader of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).”

Arrested on Nov. 4, 2016, on terrorism-related charges, Demirtaş has since then remained in prison in Turkey’s Edirne province despite two European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) rulings in 2018 and 2020 that said Demirtaş was imprisoned for “political” reasons and not for “legal” reasons, ordering his “immediate release.”
