The Diyarbakır Second High Criminal Court has made the decision to forcefully bring eight deputies from the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) to court, including the party's group Deputy Chairman Çağlar Demirel, as part of the trial against the Kurdish Communities Union (KCK), an umbrella organization that encompasses the PKK terror organization.
A trial against the HDP deputies, Osman Baydemir, Dirayet Taşdemir, Çağlar Demirel, Selma Irmak, Ahmet Yıldırım, Besime Konca, Alican Önlü, and Nadir Yıldırım, began after the constitutional changes were made to lift the immunities of some deputies in Parliament.
The court made the decision to forcefully bring the deputies to court after the defendant deputies' attorney attended the trial in the absence of the deputies on Nov. 1, 2015. The court file also includes an arrest warrant against 21 others involved in KCK activities.
