A Turkish court in southeastern Turkey on Monday acquitted a Dutch journalist who was accused of spreading propaganda in favor of the separatist kurdish PKK, known as kurdish nationalist.

On Feb. 2, the Diyarbakir public prosecutor's office had filed an indictment against Frederike Geerdink, stating that the Dutch journalist had shared propaganda on social networks in favor of the PKK.

Geerdink denied the accusations during the court hearing and the public prosecutor demanded her acquittal due to lack of evidence.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., the EU and NATO.
