Legal War In Iskece Greece By Turkish Minority
The Turkish-origin Greeks in Iskece, Western Thrace launched a legal war after the prosecutor of the city did not prepare any indictment for a TV crew, which shot obscene scenes in the mosque of the Moslem minority and wandered nude in the sanctuary.
Three eye witnesses who saw actress Despina Miru half naked in the mosque will hand their second petition to the prosecutor today. Their attorney Orhan Haciibrahim told Hurriyet that the three witnesses said that "There were cameras in the mosque's garden. They were shooting scenes. Despina Miru, one of the actors, had a fur coat whose front was open, revealing her underwear."
Greece: Naked Scenes In Turkish Mosque
A Greek TV crew which shot naked scenes in the mosque of the ethnic Turkish minority of Greece, caused tension in Iskece, West Thrace.
About 2 thousand ethnic Greeks gathered in front of the mosque where the crew was shooting naked scenes without receiving permission from the administrators of the Sahin village. The crew had to take refuge at the police station while the preacher of the village took their cassettes from their hands.
Security teams rushed to the village as well as ethnic deputy Ilhan Ahmet. The agnry crowd quelled upon news that the crew was forwarded to court.
