Chief Editor and owner of the newspaper Sener Levent and head journalist Ali Osman, were acquitted of the charges by a lower court earlier this year. The newspaper had published a carton offensive to President Erdogan after it was originally published in a Greek newspaper.

Following their acquittal, the Attorney General made two separate appeals against the lower court ruling, adding that separate trials were a feature unique to the TRNC.

The case has been postponed until 19 December.
