The egregiously misnamed A.O.K., right, and his victim.
In Istanbul, student T.Y. (23) wanted to end her 4-year relationship
with A.O.K (22), who resisted, threatening her by saying "you'll
be with the dirt, you'll die! I have photos of you!" On 26 February
T.Y. asked to speak with A.O.K. but when she declared that "I don't
want to make up." A.O.K. punched, choked and beat T.Y.
After T.Y. filed a police report, A.O.K. claimed she had fallen
because of her high heels and that, despite the threatening messages
he sent to her that were part of the evidence file, he asserted that
"I'm the victim here!" (!) The public prosecutor wanted A.O.K.
jailed but the court released him, saying he might reform.
Nevertheless, the prosecutor persisted, citing the seemingly
never-ending attacks and killings of women in Turkey these days
but both the first court and a higher court rejected the prosecutor's
pleas. Undaunted, the prosecutor has asked that the suspect's
home be searched and his telephone seized.
A.O.K.'s role model.
