A former Republican People’s Party (CHP) lawmaker was detained June 29 on terrorism charges.
The former member of the parliament was on trial over his work during his time as the editor-in-chief of Karşı newspaper.
The prosecutor accused Erdem in the indictment for “aiding a terrorist organization without being a member,” “revealing the identity of a secret witness,” and “violating the confidentiality of a criminal investigation.”
Erdem, who is charged with links to the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization (FETÖ), could be jailed from 9.5 years to 22 years, the indictment says.
Turkish media reported on June 29 that Erdem was detained over suspicions that he would flee the country.
