HDK’s Hamzaoğlu and ESP’s Çelebi released from prison

Court decided to release HDK Co-spokesperson Onur Hamzaoğlu and ESP Deputy Chair Fadime Çelebi.

12 politicians including Peoples’ Democratic Congress (HDK) Co-spokesperson and Academic for Peace Prof. Dr. Onur Hamzaoğlu and Socialist Party of the Oppressed (ESP) Deputy Chair Fadime Çelebi have been standing trial for criticising Turkey’s operation against Afrin which eventually resulted in the occupation of the canton by Turkish military forces and allied jihadist gangs.

Hearing in the case against 12 pro-Kurdish and socialist politicians has been held in Ankara on Thursday.

The court decided to release Hamzaoğlu and Çelebi.
