Konya court orders teacher to pay fine amid divorce from husband over affair with student
KONYA – Doğan News Agency
A court in the Central Anatolian province of Konya has ruled for a female teacher to pay compensation to her husband, in addition to the already-in-process divorce, over an affair she had with a student.
The woman – an English language teacher at a high school - was in the process of getting divorced when she and the student were understood to have been in close contact, communicating often and texting each other including with nude pictures.
After understanding the situation, the man decided to apply to a marital court, saying his wife was disrespecting the ongoing divorce procedure.
In his application, the man demanded the woman pay him some 200,000 Turkish Liras (roughly $49,000) in compensation in addition to the divorce.
On April 30 the court ruled for the woman to pay 20,000 Turkish Liras, rather than the 200,000 demanded, on top of finalizing their divorce.
