Turkey s Erdogan says ECHR ruling on jailed politician supports of terrorism

ANKARA - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruling on the jailed former leader of Turkey s pro-Kurdish opposition amounted to support of terrorism The ECHR urged Turkey on Tuesday to swiftly process the legal case of Selahattin Demirtas, former leader of Kurdish party in the parliament, saying his pre-trial detention had gone on longer than could be justified.
