DTK Council Member sentenced to 6 years and 3 months in prison
DTK Council Member Jiyan Taş was sentenced to 6 years and 3 months in prison.
The AKP-MHP government's political genocide practices against the Kurdish people are continuing unabated.
The verdict of the lawsuit against Jiyan Taş, a council member of the Democratic Society Congress (DTK) on charge of "being a member of an organization", was rendered at the Diyarbakır 10th High Criminal Court. Lawyers Seda Zengin and Mahmut Vefa attended the hearing. Taş, standing trial without arrest, also attended the hearing.
The prosecution demanded that Taş be sentenced to 7 and a half to 15 years in prison, citing her activities within the DTK as justification.
The court tribunal sentenced Jiyan Taş to 6 years and 3 months in prison for "being a member of a terrorist organization".
