The hashtag #ElmalıDavası (Apple Case) is trending in Turkey.
The two suspects in Elmalı Davası (Apple Case), mother Merve A. and stepfather Rahmi A., who were arrested within the scope of investigations carried out regarding the sexual abuse of her daughter GEG (7) and her older brother İ.EG (10) in Finike district of Antalya, by Elmalı High Criminal Court.. They were released at the third trial.
