The Ankara 24th criminal court of first instance decided the verdict over an article in which quoted remarks by opposition Republican Peoples Party leader Kemal K?l??daro?lu about President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an.

The prosecutor claimed that Cemal exceeded the limits of criticism by accusing Erdo?an of dictatorship and corruption in an article published on the T24 news website on Jan. 16, 2016.

When Cemal testified, he said that the remarks about the president were said by K?l??daro?lu and should be evaluated with regards to freedom of expression.
