First Explanation From Özçivit Front
According to Medyaradar; Özçivit's lawyer, Serkan Toper, made a written statement.
"This press release has become necessary in order to prevent the efforts to create an unfair impression about my client, Burak Özçivit, in the print and digital media today, and to inform the public correctly. The people present in the news in the title of complainant abused their constitutional right to complain."
“Agreement to the Rules of Integrity”
"The abuse of the right to complain is the act of humiliating the person with unfair behavior knowing his innocence and providing unfair benefits. The legal order does not protect the abuse of a right. The right to complain has been abused and has turned into an act against the rules of honesty by becoming an unfair behavior against the client."
“Astronomic Numbers Requested”
"As a result of fictional allegations submitted to the judicial authorities, astronomical amounts were requested from the client, and when these demands were not met, the client's reputation in the public eye was attacked with untrue statements served to the press.
"We firmly believe that the truth will emerge as a result of the trial, and that truth will prevail against opportunism and baseless claims. Truth is like the sun. It will come out when the time comes. We respectfully announce to the public that these fictions, which are put forward for unfair and exorbitant demands, will return from the unfailing justice of the Turkish Judiciary."
