HDP's former deputy to remain in prison despite release order

Shafaq News/ On Saturday, a Turkish court ordered the release of the former Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) deputy Aysel Tuğluk due to a health condition.

The eighth session of the 15th hearing of the Kobanî trial, where 108 Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) face life sentences over the deadly Kobanî protests in 2014, was held yesterday (August 5) at the Sincan Prison Complex in Ankara, the capital.

Turkish media said Tuğluk, the Democratic Society Party (DTP) co-chair, was imprisoned due to an accusation in the Kobani case. Still, the court decided to release her because she suffers from "dementia."
