It has been 24 hours since a coordinated nationwide police operation was launched against lawmakers from Turkey’s pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democracy Party (HDP), the third-largest group in parliament.

The picture is hugely confusing, with conflicting reports of arrests, warrants and court-issued charges. Some MPs – including the party’s co-leaders, Selahattin Demirtaş and Figen Yüksekdağ – are tonight behind bars pending trial.

At the time of writing at around 8pm Turkish time on Friday evening, 14 of the party’s 59 MPs have either been arrested or have warrants issued in their name:

  • Most of them – eight in total, including Ms Yüksekdağ, Mr Demirtaş and the HDP parliamentary group leader İdris Baluken – have been charged and remanded in custody;
  • Three have been released but have had to surrender their passports or submit to further judicial checks;
  • One MP – Abdullah Zeydan – is still in detention waiting to be charged or released,
  • Two MPs – Tuğba Hezer and Faysal Sarıyıldız – were abroad at the time of last night’s operation. Pro-government sources claim they have cancelled plans to return to Turkey.

Here’s a spreadsheet – updated as frequently as I can – of the 59 HDP MPs and their present status.

Update 13 December 2016: warrants have been issued for the release of more HDP MPs, meaning this page is being updated once again.

Update 26 April 2017: this spreadsheet is still being updated as more MPs are detained, arrested and released.
