Alparslan Kuytul, the head of a religious community critical of the Turkish government, was released pending trial on Thursday after 22 months of incarceration, the Turkish media reported.
Furkan Foundation Chairman Kuytul, a vocal critic of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, is facing a 20-year prison sentence on terrorism charges.
He was released by a court pending trial in January and re-arrested after an objection from a prosecutor. “
We beg Allah for the freedom of victims who were unlawfully prisoned,” the followers of Kuytul wrote in a statement issued on Thursday.
