Polish man injures 7 after finding wife nude at Turkish poolside
MARMARİS – Doğan News Agency
DHA PhotoA Polish couple has been deported from Turkey with a five-year travel ban after a man injured seven people, including two police officers, in a drunken rage after finding his wife nude at their hotel’s pool in the southwestern Turkish province of Marmaris.
The couple, Mercin Tomasz Flakiewicz and Jolanta Irena Flakiewicz, arrived in Marmaris from the U.K. and allegedly consumed alcohol from midday until 11:00 p.m. on May 31, despite having been warned multiple times over disturbing other guest at the hotel.
According to reports, Jolanta Irena Flakiewicz removed her clothing and sniped at hotel customers whilst
walking around the hotel’s pool naked, as her husband was inebriated.
Hotel employees then roused the man, asking him to intervene. However, he instead attacked an employee and two Russian tourists who were relaxing by the pool.
In his testimony to the police, the man claimed he became angry after finding his wife naked.
“I got frustrated when I saw my wife nude and I engaged in aggressive behavior,” he said.
Unable to bring the couple under control, the hotel called the police for help, but the couple also attacked the two arriving policemen. Only after the use of teargas could the couple be handcuffed and taken under custody.
The couple continued their aggressive acts at the police station. After initially attacking a translator who was called in to help with their testimonies, they later smashed two computer monitors and a fax machine. The woman also urinated in the observation room.
All six victims, except for the translator, filed complaints against the couple, which were later sent to court.
In his testimony, Mercin Tomasz Flakiewicz claimed their drinks had been drugged, which caused their aggressive behavior.
It was decided the couple would be deported with a five-year travel restriction to Turkey. The couple was brought to Dalaman Airport under police supervision and they were returned to the United Kingdom.
