30th June 2010, Comments 0 comments


Turkish media report that Saban Baran has been freed on bail by a judge in Antalya. He was arrested in Turkey in February on suspicion of the assault and extortion of a former business partner.

He was earlier jailed for seven and a half years in the Netherlands for the abusive trafficking of women. Last September, he was given compassionate leave from jail to visit his newly born baby. He fled the country and travelled to Turkey from where he cannot be extradited to the Netherlands.
