Beritan Canözer, a Jin News Agency (JINHA) journalist who was detained for “appearing excited,” has been sentenced to one year and three months in prison.

 

Canözer, who was sentenced for “conducting terrorist propaganda,” was originally detained last year for “being excited” while covering a story before being formally arrested on 19 December 2016.

She was released 29 March 2016 pending trial. The court, which has postponed the release of the reason for the conviction, commuted Canözer’s sentence to five years of parole.
