A Turkish court on Monday sentenced a former lawmaker from the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) to more than 22 years in jail on terror-related charges.
Leyla Guven, who was stripped of her parliamentary immunity in June, was convicted by a court in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir of membership of a terror group and disseminating terror propaganda for outlawed Kurdish militants, an AFP reporter said.
Guven launched a hunger strike in 2018 in a bid to end jailed Kurdish leader Abdullah Ocalan's isolation.
