Turkish court rules calling husband 'baldie' is a crime
Local media reported on Saturday that Turkey’s Supreme Court of Appeals recently issued a verdict, directing lower courts on how to rule on divorce cases in which both members of an estranged couple “insult” at each other.
The court had called the husband’s silence over his mother’s verbal assaults on his wife a “marital flaw” when ruling for the compensation.
The Supreme Court of Appeals’ 2nd Legal Chamber annulled the lower court’s ruling in a recently published precedent, stressing that the man was also insulted by his ex-wife.
“The woman had called her husband ‘baldie’ in front of multiple people, which amounts to contempt ... As such, both sides of the marriage have equal flaws, which means that no side should pay any compensation,” the ruling said.
