STANBUL (Reuters) - A Turkish prosecutor has opened an investigation into the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) head Selahattin Demirtas over alleged comments about Kurdish self-rule, Dogan news agency reported on Monday.
On Sunday, a congress of Kurdish groups, including the HDP, made a call for self-rule after a two-day meeting in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir.
"The rightful resistance mounted by our people against the policies that degrade the Kurdish problem, is essentially a demand and struggle for local self-governance and local democracy," the groups said in their final resolution.
