Coup convict busted amid sexual act with lawyer cousin in prison: Report
A former military captain who was convicted of illegally arresting a general during the July 2016 coup attempt has been caught by guards in a prison amid a sexual act with his cousin who is also his attorney, local media reported.
According to a report published by daily Akşam on Nov. 14, the former captain, who was unidentified, had received an aggravated life sentence for illegally arresting Naval War Academy Commander Major General Mesut Özel on July 15, 2016, as a member of FETÖ.
The former soldier, who was imprisoned in Istanbul’s Silivri prison, has been regularly using the right to face-to-face meeting with his attorney.
The report said the two men walked away from the view of the security camera during their meeting on June 18. Prison guards, who became suspicious of the move, stormed the meeting room and found the former captain and his cousin amid sexual intercourse.
According to the report, the Prosecutor’s Office launched an investigation into the incident as the former soldier’s prison room was changed and a legal complaint against the attorney was filed with the bar association.
