Two Kurds from Stavanger have been released from custody in Turkey, where they have been jailed since this summer. But they must remain in the country.

Both are Norwegian citizens and worked as taxi drivers in Stavanger, writes Stavanger Aftenblad.

Turkish police suspect them of having leadership roles in the banned Kurdish organization PKK, which is considered by the Turkish authorities as a terrorist organization. They are charged with terrorism or support for this.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirms that the men have been released but does not want to give further statements.

According to Aftenbladet, the men are still charged and must report to the police every day. They are deprived of their passports and are not allowed to leave Turkey. The charges are expected to end in a lawsuit, the newspaper writes.
