Turkish prosecutor seeks jail for ex-MPs for PKK propaganda

A lawsuit was filed against two members of the outlawed Democratic Society Party (DTP) for allegedly making propaganda of the PKK in their speeches.

The Chief Prosecutor's Office in the southeastern province of Diyarbakir prepared two separate indictments against Ahmet Turk and Aysel Tugluk after they were stripped off their political immunity.

The prosecutor demanded 45 years in prison for Turk and 70 years for Tugluk for allegedly propagandizing for PKK in their speeches between the years of 2005 and 2009.

Trial of Turk and Tugluk will begin in the coming days.

The Constitutional Court outlawed the DTP on December 11, 2009, after ruling that the party became a focal point of activities against state's unity with its actions and ties to the PKK terrorist organization. The court also barred Turk and Tugluk, former co-chairpersons, and 35 other party members from joining any political party for five years.
