Pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) lawmaker Leyla Güven was released from prison on Tuesday, five days after being imprisoned over alleged links to the outlawed militant Kurdistan Workers’ party (PKK).
The HDP lawmaker’s release follows an appeal filed by her lawyer, pro-Kurdish Fırat News Agency said.
Güven is one of three opposition MPs in Turkey detained immediately after being stripped of parliamentary immunity on June 5.
The government has repeatedly accused the HDP of ties to the PKK, which fought against the Turkish state in the country’s southeast parts since 1984.
Turkey, the United States and European Union designate PKK as a terrorist group. The HDP denies such links.
