Hakan Aysal was sentenced for the murder of his wife

Hakan Aysal was convicted of the murder of his wife. Aysal forced his wife to the top of a cliff.

Turkey’s Fethiye Heavy Criminal Court sentenced Aysal to aggravated life imprisonment on February 15 for the murder of his wife, Semra Aysal, 33, who was seven months pregnant.

Under Turkish law, he would not be eligible for parole for 30 years. But now, in a sick attempt to evade justice, Aysal says that he was not fit to stand trial.

Aysal forced his wife to the top of a cliff.

In June 2018, Hakan Aysal forced his pregnant wife, who was afraid of heights, to the top of a cliff in Butterfly Valley, Fethiye.

Once at the beauty spot, he made her wait three hours for it to be emptied of other tourists so he could discreetly perform the heinous act.

He then used the cash from seven loans and a £18,800 collateralized personal accident insurance policy he had taken out in Semra’s name before her death to finance a life of luxury before he was caught by the law.

Shortly after being jailed for murder, he attempted to sue 200 people who he claimed had insulted him on social media for £236 per person. It is not clear if any of these lawsuits ended up in court.
