Rape trial continues

14 March 2013

The trial of Mehmet Caka 22, who is accused of raping and stealing money from a 76 year old British woman from Ozankoy, continued yesterday.

The defence lawyer, Mentes Aziz, brought his first witness, Professor of Medicine Serhat Gurpinar, to the trial at Kyrenia Criminal Court. He is forensic expert and specialist.

Mr Gurpinar took the stand to read out a statement outlining the medical evidence that had been produced by the prosecution. He then went on to point out what he felt were deficiencies in this evidence.

After cross examination by the prosecutor, the case was adjourned until March 15th.
