Alcohol adulteration trial continues in turkey

Alcohol adulteration trial continues in turkey

The reopening of the trial had become necessary after the court of cassation in ankara, as the highest court, had overturned the first sentences on the grounds of insufficient punishment.

The court in antalya followed the request of the victims’ lawyer, deniz yildirim, to admit new evidence. Above all, the exact period of the business relationship between the hotel and the alcohol supplier must be clarified, yildirim emphasized to the dpa news agency. The penalty for the accused could increase significantly if it can be proven that they have been distributing adulterated alcohol for more than one year.

During a class trip in 2009, a group of students from lubeck was served adulterated, deadly alcohol in a hotel in the city of kemer. A 21-year-old died of methanol poisoning, a 17- and a 19-year-old fell into a coma and died later in the university hospital in lubeck.

The two main defendants, two drink suppliers, were sentenced to 60 years in prison in 2011. A purchasing manager and the hotel’s restaurant manager were each sentenced to five years for involuntary manslaughter and involuntary bodily injury.

The process will take place on 21. February continued.
