Lawyer Cem Halavurt representing pastor Andrew Craig Brunson has applied to the Constitutional Court for house arrest and international travel ban imposed on Brunson to be lifted.
In the petition, lawyer Halavurt stated that Brunson was arrested in December 2016 and the house arrest decision was issued in July 2018 and his freedom has still been restricted.
Brunson will appear before judge on October 12.
Brunson's attorney Cem Halavurt previously appealed to İzmir 2nd Heavy Penal Court, requesting that his client be released from house arrest and his international travel ban be lifted. His request was rejected on August 15.
Upon the rejection of his request, he appealed to the the İzmir 3rd Heavy Penal Court, repeating his previous requests.
However, the İzmir 3rd Heavy Penal Court also rejected the requests that Brunson be released from house arrest and his international travel ban be overturned.
Pastor Brunson is facing up to 15 years in prison on charge of "committing crimes in the name of a terrorist organization as non-member" and up to 20 years in prison for "espionage."
Brunson was arrested in December 2016 and his detention was turned into house arrest on July 25, 2018. (EMK/TK)
