Elçin Sangu, forced to pay almost 4 million Turkish Liras to her ex-agent: "I will not be silent anymore".

Bad news for Elçin Sangu. After more than six years of litigation, Turkish justice has ruled in favor of her former agent Başay Okay, who denounced the fraudulent dismissal she was subjected in 2016 by the actress. The judgment obliges the 'I Rent You My Love' star to pay compensation totaling almost four million Turkish Liras: 1 million 350 thousand in compensation and 2 million 378 thousand in interest for all the jobs the actress accepted during these past years.

When the litigation started, both parties intended to settle their differences as amicably as possible but, failing to reach an agreement, the case has dragged on until now and could continue with the appeal of the actress, who has already responded by making it clear that she believes in her innocence and is not going to give up.

Elçin Sangu and her ex-manager

Elçin has responded to the ruling with a statement.

The news of the latest ruling has spread like wildfire and several media outlets have echoed the judgment. In response to it, the interpreter and her lawyer Ali Demirel have wanted to release a joint statement in which they make it clear that, in response to the decision of the local court, they will appeal the ruling to higher instances since "it is a legal right".  In addition, Elçin has made it clear that the case file is available for anyone who wants to read it and urges the press and his own fans to read it and draw their own conclusions. "I have been silent until now but enough is enough! I haven't told what they have done to me until today, but I won't be silent anymore!"

Başay Okay: "Even if this case was worth 1 lira, I would have fought."

The star's former agent always believed in her innocence and stood her ground during the trials, which took place last summer: "Elçin Sangu, in addition to unfairly terminating our contract, did not hand over the commissions due to me from advertising contracts, but gave them to another manager. Everyone knows that in this industry. I am right. Six years have passed and I am still continuing my fight. Even if this case was worth 1 lira, I would have fought." Finally, the court has ruled in her favor, although we will still have to wait for possible appeals from the actress's lawyers.
