Until last week, Cuma Bayraktar worked as a delivery man for Onbasilar kebab house in Nicosia. However he has been arrested by Nicosia police for theft and is now awaiting their investigations to be concluded. Mr Bayraktar has been charged with collecting a total of TL350 cash from customers who had their kebabs delivered. Instead of returning these payments to the kebab shop owner, he spent the money gambling.
Nicosia Police attested in court that Mr Bayraktar had committed similar crimes with three previous kebab shops.
