'Peach' disrupts Turkey's match-fixing court hearing
Hürriyet photoSuspects of Turkey's match-fixing case made their final defenses today in Istanbul, but a suspect had to be taken out of the courtroom due to a twitch.
Şükrü Ongan, who was being tried without arrest, was making his defense when lawyer İsmail Gürses yelled "peach."
Ongan stopped talking and started to squirm amid baffled looks from the court council. Chief judge asked Ongan if he had a twitch to which Ongan managed to answer "yes," with great difficulty. The judge told Ongan to go outside and relax.
Chuckles were heard around the courtroom after the incident. The judge asked who was responsible for triggering Ongan's twitch. Gürses smiled and said "I am," to which the judge replied, "I should have made you leave the courtroom."
