The blogger Mika Can Raun was arrested in Turkey for flushing a bill of 100 liras (about 330 rubles) down the toilet. The prosecutor's office demanded seven years in prison for the girl for humiliating symbols of state sovereignty and insulting the memory of the country's first president, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk - his portrait is shown on the banknote.
"People throw money into streams and fountains in Europe and nothing happens. Is it a crime that I threw 100 lira into the filth of my beautiful country?" responded Mika Jan Raun to the accusation.
She published her scandalous video amid the fall of the lira against the U.S. dollar, MK Turkey reported.
The Turkish Penal Code has a special law on crimes committed against the memory of Ataturk. The penalty is up to three years in prison. It is likely that the prosecutor's office demands a cumulative punishment for the Influencer.
