Turkey: A man sentenced to 8,658 years in prison in Istanbul, what crime did he commit?

Turkey: An Istanbul court sentenced Adnan Oktar, a Muslim television preacher, to 8,658 years in prison on Wednesday. He was surrounded by female anchors wearing skimpy clothes and lots of make-up and used to call them all “Billi ki Bachi”. He has been sentenced to thousands of years earlier also.

According to Turkish local media, Adnan Oktar is alleged to have promoted creationism and conservative values ​​and was surrounded by women wearing a lot of make-up and short dresses and used to lead television programmes. Last year, 66-year-old Oktar was sentenced to 1,075 years in prison for a range of major crimes including attempted sexual assault, sexual abuse of minors, fraud and political and military espionage. But that decision was overturned by a higher court.

During a retrial, the Istanbul High Criminal Court sentenced Oktar to 8,658 years in prison on a number of charges, including sexual abuse and deprivation of liberty, Anadolu news agency reported. The agency said the court also sentenced 10 other suspects to 8,658 years in prison.

Oktar, who is seen by critics as a cult leader, has faced criticism for his programs on the online A9 television channel and has been condemned by several Turkish religious leaders. In a major crackdown on his entire group, he was taken into custody in 2018 following an investigation by the Financial Crimes Unit of the Istanbul Police. This year now he has been sentenced to 8, 658 years.
