New decision in the case regarding the child who drowned in the irrigation canal in Adana!  The defendant was sentenced to 25 years in prison


The detained defendant attended the hearing at the 4th Criminal Chamber of the Adana Regional Court of Justice from AS Prison via the Audio and Video Information System (SEGBİS). The lawyers of the parties were present at the hearing.

Announcing his opinion on the merits, the public prosecutor offered his opinion that since there was no change in the conditions of the defendant’s detention, it should be decided that A.S.’s current situation should continue.

The defendant AS, whose defense was taken, stated that he did not accept the accusations and said, “The allegations against me do not reflect the truth. I demand my release and acquittal.” he said.

The court panel annulled the 20-year prison sentence given to the defendant by the local court for “intentional murder under unjust provocation”.

It was also decided that A.S. would continue to be detained.
