ALIAGA, Turkey (Reuters) - A Turkish prosecutor called on Friday for a court to lift judicial controls on U.S. pastor Andrew Brunson who has been detained or under house arrest in Turkey for two years on terrorism charges.

Brunson’s lawyer earlier told Reuters that a ruling to lift the judicial controls would mean the evangelical pastor would be free to leave the country immediately.
