The Turkish regime has issued two sentences against the Sana correspondent in Turkey

On Monday the Turkish court sentenced the local correspondent of the Syrian Arab news agency SANA in Turkey Mohsen Mahalli to more than four years in prison.

The Istanbul court sentenced Mahalli to one year, eight months and 25 days, on charges of insulting the state and the Turkish government, allegedly because of his talk about the Turkish government’s support for armed groups.

The court sentenced to two years, five months and five days to Mahalli, for insulting Erdogan after highlighting the policies that led to internal and external problems and crises suffered by Turkey.

“All political leaders, ministers, generals, former diplomats and even Vice President Joe Biden, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin have said in their statements that the Turkish regime supports terrorism in Syria … As a journalist I have relied on the statements of these officials,” he said.

Lawyers for the journalist Mahli filed an appeal against the court’s ruling, which will soon be referred to the Supreme Appeal Court in Ankara.

On December 13, 2016, the Turkish authorities arrested journalist Husni Mahli and released him after 39 days under the pretext of insulting Erdogan and the Turkish government.

Three days after his arrest, he was transferred to the hospital because of his deteriorating health while in detention. He spent one night there, although doctors there insisted that he should remain in the hospital, but the Turkish authorities insisted he go to court to present his testimony.
