Some further background concerning Diyarbakir Sur Mayor Abdullah Demirbas,
who appears currently to be the target of the Ubuntu controversy. It
appears that he has been prosecuted before, in relation
to multiculturalism and language issues, under so-called "terrorism
propaganda" laws. 

He was acquitted at that time.

My reading of the term "Governor-General" in this case is that the
governor concerned is a regional governor and not a national one.
