Izmir, Turkey (dpa) - A court in Turkey on Friday lifted US pastor Andrew Brunson‘s house arrest and travel ban, state news agency Anadolu reported.

The court in the Aegean province of Izmir sentenced him to three years, one month and 15 days in prison - but Brunson‘s lawyer Ismail Cem Halavurt told dpa he expects that his client will leave the country on Friday.

The trial on espionage and terrorism-related charges against the evangelical US pastor triggered a diplomatic spat and trade row between NATO allies, Turkey and the United States.

Brunson had told the court: "I‘m an innocent man. I demand my acquittal. I leave my defence to the lawyer. I love Jesus. I love Turks," according to Andolu.

He was accused of links to the movement of Fethullah Gulen, an Islamic cleric who lives in exile in the US and whom Turkey blames for a failed coup attempt on July 15, 2016. He was also accused of having ties to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers‘ Party (PKK).
