Turkey’s Court of Cassation has ruled for the release of main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) deputy Enis Berberoğlu, while upholding his jail sentence.

Berberoğlu was initially sentenced to 25 years in prison in 2017 for espionage over charges of providing daily Cumhuriyet with a video purporting to show Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MİT) trucking weapons into Syria.

In a retrial that finished on Feb. 13 of this year, Berberoğlu, who has denied the charges, was sentenced to five years and 10 months in jail.
