Journalist sentenced to 3 years in prison for tweets
The Third Chamber of the Gaziantep Regional Appeals Court today denied İsmail Eskin's appeal of a three-year, 45-day prison sentence on charges of "making propaganda for a terrorist organization," the news website Dihaberreported.
Diyarbakır's Fourth Court for Serious Crimes in March found Eskin, a former journalist for the Dicle News Agency (DİHA), guilty of the charge on the basis of his tweets on Kurdish fighters' battles with the Islamic State group. The journalist was not yet in custody, Dihaber reported today.
