Gaziantep man says his former lover’s husband ‘raped and photographed him’
The 34-year-old man met the woman, who was living in the nearby southern province of Hatay, via social media four years ago.
Their affair lasted for nearly a year before the pair stopped seeing each other. Three years later, the man received a call from the woman, inviting him to meet her at an address she provided. This was the first time they had spoken in three years.
But when the man visited the Gaziantep address, he was shocked to find himself confronted by two men as well as his former lover.
The two men, one of whom was his former lover’s husband, allegedly forced him to a nearby forest, where they dressed him in women’s lingerie and took photographs of him. This is when he claims his former lover’s husband raped him.
The man also said the two men stole his mobile phone and money.
“[My former lover] asked me to follow her, so I followed her. She took me to a dead-end street but she did not enter the street herself. Then two men wielding knives and guns forced me into a car and took me somewhere. The woman’s husband raped me while his friend took pictures on a mobile phone. After this ordeal, they dressed me in women’s clothes, took my photo again and sent these photos to a friend of mine via social media. They threatened to disgrace me and forced me to hand over my money and mobile phone,” he said in his testimony.
The man said he returned to Hatay’s İskenderun district after the incident and had pressed charges against the woman, her husband and their friend, issuing a formal complaint to the Hatay Chief Prosecutor’s Office.
