“The detainee suspect had two demands during the hearing. The first was a request to investigate Hande Buse Şeker’s involvement in the extortion gang and the criminal record of her. The other was a request to investigate whether the person, who was with the suspect on the day of the event, knew Hande Buse Şeker or not. Both of them were rejected by the Court as they were not relevant to the cause of action."
