Turkish news outlets are reporting that Enes Kanter's father, Mehmet Kanter, has been sentenced to 15 years in jail by a court in Turkey. Enes Kanter believes it is a result of his outspoken stance against the Turkish government and president Recep Erdogan. Kanter's father is not in the country at the moment but could be detained when he returns. "No matter what happens, I will continue to keep fighting for Human rights and Freedom of speech; Justice and Democracy above all," Kanter said in a statement. "I will stand for what I believe in. All I'm doing is trying to be the voice of all those innocent people."
