Turkish TV series actor jailed for unlicensed gun

İsmail Bayrak – ISTANBUL

Turkish television series actor Ufuk Bayraktar has been jailed for brandishing an unlicensed gun during a fight. 

Bayraktar, who was known in popular shows like “Vatanım Sensin” (You Are My Homeland), was convicted over the fight in 2007 but the appeal process took more than a decade.

The 36-year-old actor was sent to prison last month to serve the six months of his jail sentence.

Bayraktar, who had won the Best Actor price in 26th Istanbul Film Festival, was also accused of injuring two people in a bar fight in Istanbul last year.
