ISTANBUL: Comments over the weekend from the leader of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) were a “clear provocation” and the party “will be taught a lesson” by the people and the law, President Tayyip Erdogan said in a live broadcast on Tuesday.

A Turkish prosecutor opened an investigation into HDP head Selahattin Demirtas for calls for greater Kurdish self-governance, Dogan news agency reported on Monday.

Demirtas, a lawyer turned politician, was one of the participants in a two-day congress of Kurdish groups this weekend that called for more self-governance.
