The prosecutor in the trial of U.S. pastor Andrew Brunson said on Friday that he should be punished and jailed for up to 10 years.

In his final statement, the prosecutor also called for judicial controls on Brunson to be lifted, which his lawyer has said would mean he would be free to leave the country immediately.
