The Diyarbakır 4th High Criminal Court ruled on Thursday to sentence Sadak to two years in prison on charges of spreading PKK propaganda during a speech he delivered in August 2010 in the Eruh district of Siirt. A separate case against Sadak, which was being heard at the Batman 2nd Criminal Court of Peace, also concluded on Thursday and he was sentenced to one month in prison on charges of “praising a crime and a criminal.”

The case was filed against Sadak following a speech he delivered in Batman in 2007, in which he referred to Öcalan as “esteemed Öcalan.” Sadak’s lawyers have appealed both rulings. (TODAY’S ZAMAN, 1 December 2011)
