Students hoping to get to the Fenerbahçe football match
tried the same technique in an old Turkish film, but their
plan 'fell through', too.
For the second time in 18 months robbery inmates at a jail in the
judicial building in Küçükçekmece, Istanbul, have tried to escape.
The inmates faked a fight and six of them fled into the room's
false ceiling. One fell in front of a courtroom, one fell in the
women's restroom and a third fell in a judge's chambers (!), broke
a window and escaped the building but was recaptured the next day.
On January 31st, 20 robbery suspects were brought to the judicial
building in Sefaköy, Küçükçekmece, to give their statements.
Faking a fight, six of the suspects entered the false ceiling. Besides
the three who fell through the ceiling, the three others were nabbed
within the building.
On 30 June 2016, in the same judicial building, members of a
robbery gang put their leader on their shoulders and into the false
ceiling. He, too, fell through the ceiling into the court secretariat
where workers screamed and summoned police.
