Hümeyra and Melek after hubby-dad Özcan's tirade.
Melek T., a high school student in the Yesilyurt neighborhood
of Adana, called to her father who was watching TV as she
tried to study: "I'm doing my home work. Please turn down the
TV." In response, her enraged father, Özcan T., said "I'm
enjoying the TV and now you've ruined it!"
Özcan T. then began to beat his daughter as wife and mother
Hümeyra T. tried to intervene. The furious Özcan T. then
started beating his wife. Melek and Hümeyra locked themselves
in a room and called police who came and took Özcan T. into
custody. Another police team took mother and daughter to the
"What's the big deal?"
Hümeyra filed a complaint against her husband, saying that he
has beaten her since the day they got married and she added
that "whatever the penalty is, he deserves it." As for Özcan T.,
when asked by reporters why he beat his wife and daughter he
responded laughingly "It's no big deal."
