HDP co-chair Demirtaş’s lawyer accused of joining ‘HDP Istanbul’ WhatsApp group

An indictment prepared against Levent Pişkin, a lawyer representing Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş, revealed that he is charged with offenses including being a member of a Whatsapp group created by the party’s Istanbul organization.

Demirtaş has been under arrest since Nov 4, 2016. Briefly detained days after his client, Pişkin now stands accused of meeting Demirtaş in prison.

The indictment seeks imprisonment for Pişkin as he is claimed to have been a member of a terrorist organization and of making propaganda on behalf.

Among the evidences the prosecutor included in the indictment for terror charges is Pişkin’s membership to HDP Istanbul WhatsApp group.
