A court in Istanbul on May 7 sentenced Cansu Pişkin, a reporter for the leftist daily Evrensel, to 10 months in prison for "establishing a target for a civil servant for terrorist organizations," observed Medyascope's TV news website.

In the next five years, the tribunal suspended Pişkin's sentence, barring a recurring crime. Pişkin had included a lawyer's name in a case against a group of university students protesting Turkey's military intervention in Syria in 2018 in a news article. Pişkin pleaded not guilty at the final hearing.

Her defense team said their client had no intention of turning the prosecutor into a objective by including his name in the post, pointing out that other press documents also included the prosecutor's name.
