WELL-known businessman Bulut Akacan, awaiting trial for his alleged role in a fight at a Girne restaurant, is asking the courts to lift a travel ban imposed as part of bail conditions so he can go to Milan.
He is also challenging the case against him, claiming there is insufficient evidence for it to be pursued in a higher court – but found himself in more hot water this week over headlines in a newspaper he launched after the prosecution began.
Akacan has been on bail since January, when he was arrested for allegedly assaulting two men.
He and two of his bodyguards, Orçun Özorçun and Vasif Kurbanov, were said to have become involved in a fight with another businessman, Erhan Başay, who was sitting in the restaurant with friends Zeki Asımoğlu and Hüseyin Soyel n January 7.
