Yavuz Ciftci appeared in Court yesterday, accused of taking over the identity of Ferhat Kilic who died in 2009.

41 year old Ciftci claimed in Kyrenia Court that he found the dead man’s kimlik (identity card) on the street and had substituted his own photo and used the kimlik as his own. He then used this identity card to obtain a false driving licence.

He was finally caught when he used both the kimlik and driving licence as documentation for a car rental.

Mr Ciftci was ordered to be detained for 3 days while police attempt to find out where else he used his false identity.
