Kevin O'Kane - Turkish Scam Update

For those of you who have been following the story of Bellaghy native, Kevin O'Kane's, story in Turkey you may be interested in the latest update, you'll find it here.

O'Kane, along with his Turkish business partner, Kubilay Atmaca, is accused of selling property to 70 couples in Altinkum, on the south coast of Turkey, and providing fake title deeds so that they would think that they owned property which they in fact did not. The case is currently running in the Turkish courts but there are also outstanding cases against O'Kane in his native Northern Ireland.

If you're not familiar with the case you'll find some background information here, here, here, here & here. There's also some comment here, and probably plenty more if you do a search on the internet and you're anxious for more information. It's a big story in Turkey and, obviously O'Kane's native Northern Ireland from where most of the purchasers originate.

O'Kane denies all the charges, claiming that his Turkish partner, Atmaca, is entirely responsible for the scam.
