    Background: ANKARA, TURKEY

    A Turkish military court sentenced the former chairman of a banned political party, and a former party executed to 12 years jail on May 4 on charges of fomenting class warfare and distributing Marxist propaganda. They were Dogu Perincek, the former chairman and Sanik Karti. They were jailed together with 26 other defendants. All had been awaiting trial for a year or more and are former executive members of the Turkish Workers and Peasants Party (TIKP). The other 26 were given sentences of from five to ten years. Turkey's military government, which seized power just over two years ago has been conducting mass trials in an effort to reduce a huge backlog of trials for alleged political offences. Perincek, a former leader of a pre-coup political party which was driven underground by the military regime, was also sentenced to lifetime restrictions from public duties. The TIKP, an anti-Moscow left wing group was founded in 1978.
