Journalist Selman Keleş was indicted on 23 February over his news reports by different news outlets that he shared at different times from his accounts, the pro-Kurdish Mezopotamya news agency reported.
The new indictment accuses him of “spreading propaganda on behalf of a terrorist organization.” The document was drafted by the Van Chief Prosecutor’s Office. The indictment includes reposts or retweets by various media outlets, including a report by AFP.
Tha Van 5th Hİgh Criminal Court, which is already trying Keleş as part of a separate case, accepted the indictment. He was released pending prison after spending eight months last year.
The next hearing will be on 5 June.
