A woman, identified by her first name, Sevda, was brought onto the show, “Müge Anlı ile Tatlı Sert,” at private broadcaster ATV to discuss the murder of her boyfriend, Medet, who was found dead on an Istanbul shore.
Sevda told the presenter, Müge Anlı, during a commercial break that she had information to share. The producers of the show then called police, and the suspect – identified as Hasan – was taken out of the studio as a security measure before she shared the information live on air.
Sevda said Hasan, whom she had had an affair, had killed Medet. Hasan had also tried to forbid her from seeing Medet, she added.
The issue had been discussed on the show for two weeks before Sevda shared the information.
