A French-Turkish student sentenced last week to more than five years in prison for terrorist propaganda on Monday paid bail of 10,000 Turkish lira (4,250 euros, $5,600) enabling her to return to France pending an appeal, her lawyer said.
The court in Bursa, northwestern Turkey, agreed the bail terms immediately after convicting the 21-year-old Sevil Sevimli on Friday.
"I paid her bail to the court today," her lawyer Inayet Aksu said. "She now has the right to leave Turkish territory at any time," he said, adding that the date for her return to France has not yet been set.
