A Turkish court in the southeastern Kurdish city of Diyarbakir sentenced a former member of parliament Monday to more than 22 years in prison on terror-related charges. 

The court also issued an arrest warrant against Leyla Güven, 55, a former lawmaker from the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP). 

The prosecutor in the case charged Güven with “establishing and managing an illegal organization” of which she was also a member in support of outlawed Kurdish militants, among 18 separate charges.  

Leyla barely suirvived her epic hunger strike but is now finally sentenced to more than 20 years jail, where she joinds many more elected prisoners of conscience.

The charges included “provoking the public to join illegal meetings and demonstrations,” and participating in “illegal” marches, which she refused to disband despite warnings. 

Güven was arrested in January 2018 after criticizing the Turkish military.

She went on hunger strike in November of that year that lasted 11 weeks to protest the prison conditions of Kurdish leader Abdullah Ocalan.

Hundreds of other prisoners and supporters joined the hunger strike and at least six died.

In January 2019, a Turkish court ordered her supervised release after her health seriously deteriorated.
