Erdogan’s lawyer got rich suing Turkey citizens, teens for “insulting”
Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s lawyer Ahmet Özel received more than 38 million Turkish Lira (about 6 million dollar) from insulting the president prosecutions, opposition Cumhuriyet said on Saturday.
Opposition CHP’s deputy Ali Mahir Başarır said in a parliamentary question “63 thousand 41 citizens were investigated. 9,554 people were convicted of insulting the president Erdoğan. His lawyer profited 38 million Turkish Lira from solicitor’s fee.’’
