Chief Prosecutor's Office in southeastern province of Diyarbakir has prepared an investigation report about the chairman of Turkey's pro-Kurdish DTP and sent it to the Ministry of Justice to be submitted to the parliament for the removal of his political immunity.
The prosecutor's office asked the removal of the Democratic Society Party (DTP) leader Ahmet Turk's immunities on the grounds that he had made the propaganda of the terror organization PKK, Anatolian Agency reported on Wednesday.
The investigation report made references to a speech Turk had delivered during a press statement in Diyarbakir last month.
The military coup in 1980 conducted "political, social and cultural genocide" on Kurds and paved the way for the establishment of the terror organization, PKK, Turk said during his speech on Oct. 21.
His remarks came after tensions rose in the mainly Kurdish southeast region over the DTP's claims that Abdullah Ocalan, the imprisoned leader of the terror organization PKK, had been mistreated in Imrali prison where he is serving a life sentence.
