Elderly Man in Turkey Sentenced to Read Erdogan’s Biography for Insulting Him

An Istanbul court sentenced 75-year-old Ali Sahin, who was accused of insulting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, to read and summarize 24 books, including an Erdogan biography, ''Turkish Minute'' reports.

Sahin was investigated by an Istanbul prosecutor for allegedly insulting Erdogan in a coffeehouse, a charge he denied and claimed to be slander. The man was questioned by the police then released on probation.

During a visit to the probation bureau, Sahin learned that he had been sentenced to read and write summaries of 24 books listed by the Istanbul 8th Criminal Court of Peace.
