Çetin Sadrazam, who was sentenced to 25 years for the murder of his wife Şükran Sadrazam on 13 April, 2011, applied to the Court of Appeal to be acquitted. The appeal was discussed by three judges at a Supreme Court committee.

The Court of Appeal accepted the appeal filed by the Attorney General’s Office regarding the defendant. Announcing the decision regarding the case, the court board convicted the accused Çetin Sadrazam of premeditated murder, annulled the 25-year prison sentence given by the lower court and replaced it with a 32-year prison sentence.
