Prominent Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) deputy Meral Danıs Bestas was arrested on Jan. 31 as part of a terror probe launched in the southeastern province of Diyarbakır, state-run Anadolu Agency has reported.

Bestas, a deputy for Adana, was arrested for “being a member of an armed terrorist organization.”

Bestas was detained on Jan. 28 as part of a terror probe by the Diyarbakır Prosecutor’s Office but was released on probation.

After the public prosecutor objected to the release, police again detained Beştaş on Jan. 31 along with Ayhan Bilgen, who was also detained for a second time.

Some 13 HDP lawmakers were detained in November 2016, and 10 of them, including co-leaders Selahattin Demirtas and Figen Yuksekdag, were arrested pending trial on terrorism-related charges.

The lawmakers face prosecution under anti-terrorism legislation after their parliamentary immunity was lifted.
