Woman accuses father of sexual abuse ‘for refusing to give credit card’
A Turkish woman has admitted she wrongly accused her father with sexual abuse out of anger for his refusal to give her his credit card.
According to a report published by Demirören News Agency, the woman, who was unidentified, filed a criminal complaint against her father in the western Turkish province of Bursa last year.
The woman claimed her father, who was recently divorced, sexually assaulted her in the apartment they lived in together.
The father, who was unidentified, was detained and the first hearing was completed at the Bursa Third Heavy Penal Court on July 4.
“I had a heart operation last year. While I was still in the hospital, my daughter asked me for my credit card and I refused. That is why she has accused me with these baseless claims,” the father told the court.
The woman confirmed her father’s account in her testimony.
“I was angry he had not given me his credit card, so I went to the police,” she said, asking the judge to drop the case and added that she still lives in the same apartment with her father.
The two left the court together as the judge ruled to proceed the case by hearing witnesses and complete the documents required for the verdict.
