Turkish court jails ‘minibus abuser’ in Istanbul
A man who was accused of sexually assaulting a mother in a minibus in Istanbul has been sentenced to five years in jail.
İbrahim Bozkurt, 35, was detained after he was accused of sexually assaulting a 32-year-old woman in a packed-up minibus in the Pendik district of Istanbul.
Bozkurt was apprehended by other passengers after the woman, who was traveling with her 10-year-old daughter, cried for help.
The judge declined to apply any reduction for the sentence, ruling for the maximum penalty possible in such crimes according to Turkish law.
