Kaftancioglu charges included insulting the president and the Turkish republic.
The Caglatan court in Istanbul also ruled against any reprieve for Kaftancioglu from the Republican People’s Party (CHP), saying she did not show any remorse during the trial, a party official reported from the courthouse.
The CHP said the case would go to the intermediate appellate court, noting that Kaftancioglu would remain free pending the appeal.
Prosecutors also accused Kaftancioglu of inciting hatred, enmity and distributing propaganda for a terrorist organisation mostly on her tweets posted between 2012 and 2017.
Speaking to reporters after the verdict, Kaftancioglu said “they think they can scare us. We will continue to speak up until the palace’s tutelage ends.’’
