Gold trader says he never liked Turkish banker facing trial (HALKB)

08 December 2017

Turkish authorities have detained 17 people linked to Zarrab in an investigation launched after he cooperated with US authorities and agreed to testify in the case.

The lawsuit says the abuse, which included rape, occurred between November 2016 and March 2017, when the men were cellmates at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan. The abuse allegedly continued until Zarrab was transferred to another unit.

The inmate, who is in his early 60s, "felt helpless and unable to fight off the younger and stronger" man, the suit says, adding that the inmate was also "too scared and embarrassed at that time to complain or to seek help".

According to the lawsuit, the inmate again was attacked by Zarrab on March 8 and started yelling.

Afterward, Zarrab was removed from prison and has remained since in the custody of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, though he has not said where.

In September 2016, Zarrab hired a lawyer for Jaber and arranged to have him moved into the same cell, the suit said.

Erdogan has condemned the prosecution and on Saturday proclaimed, "My country can never be condemned by virtual courts set up by FETO (Fethullahist Terrorist Organisation) scoundrels, fake representatives".

According to a message submitted into evidence, the attorney reported to Zarrab that "someone" said: "This job should definitely be done".
