Kurdish MP sentenced to 10 years for PKK propaganda
AA PhotoA Diyarbakır court has sentenced independent deputy Leyla Zana to 10 years in prison for conducting propaganda on behalf of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), private broadcaster NTV reported on its website today.
The verdict follows a 2008 case against Zana that cited nine different speeches that constituted propaganda, according to the court.
Zana previously served 10 years in prison for convictions in the 1990s and was released in 2004. She became an independent member of Parliament during June 2011 elections.
