BERLIN – A German appeals court has ruled a 20-year-old man convicted in the death of a German-Turkish women, in a case that drew national attention, can be deported to his native Serbia.
The man, known as Sanel M. because his last name wasn't given in line with privacy laws, was sentenced to three years in prison over the death of 23-year-old Tugce Albayrak. He was convicted in 2015 of causing bodily harm resulting in death.
Witnesses said Albayrak helped two young women being harassed by the defendant and another man at a fast-food restaurant. He hit her in the face outside and she died two weeks later.
The Kassel state administrative court on Tuesday confirmed a lower court's ruling that Sanel M. can be deported, the dpa news agency reported.
