Aysel Tugluk, former HDP deputy co-chairwoman, had been detained in Ankara in 2016 December and later remanded in custody as part of an anti-terror investigation.
She was accused of managing a terror organization, the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said.
At her court hearing, Tugluk rejected the accusation of being a manager of a terror organization and said the Democratic Society Congress (DTK) is not an extension of a terror organization.
“DTK is not an illegal organization, it also never made a call to violence. The main goal [of it] is the democratic resolution of the Kurdish issue,” she had said.
The government accuses the HDP of being linked to the PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU.
