TURKISH COURT FREES US PASTOR BRUNSON AFTER 2YRS IN JAIL

A Turkish court will release imprisoned US pastor Andrew Brunson, who was jailed for alleged terror links following 2016’s failed coup attempt. Brunson’s arrest has soured US-Turkish relations, with Trump pushing for his release.
Charged with terrorism offences, the court handed down a sentence of 3 years and 1-1/2 month sentence for the evangelical Christian pastor on Friday. Despite the verdict, the court also ruled that the US man would not serve any further time as he had already been detained by authorities since October 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is good news; but how it will play out, regarding Turkey's relationship with the US, is still up in the air.
