ISTANBUL, April 11 (Reuters) - A Turkish court on Thursday acquitted HSBC Turkey chief executive Selim Kervanci of a charge of insulting President Tayyip Erdogan by retweeting a video on social media at the time of nationwide protests in 2013.

Kervanci told the court he did not intend to insult anyone by retweeting the video and had not viewed the video before sharing it.
