Could Teenager Marco Weiss Stop Turkey From Entering The EU?

I just have to comment on a story that I just read. A German teenager Marco Weiss was recently arrested in Turkey for kissing a local girl. Marco was on vacation and apparently met the girl at a disco, they went back to his room and kissed a few times. Marco is 17 years old, the girl said she was 15. Now, the problem is that her parents found out and she had lied about her age. She was only 13 years old.

Her parents went to the cops and now Marco has been in jail for more than 10 weeks. Marco didn’t commit rape or anything, as far as I know he just kissed this girl while at vacation in Antalya (and from the newspapers I have read, the girl kissed Marco first).

Turkey has rejected direct appeals from Germany
, and now things are heating up. I am not sure how prison cells are in Turkey, but hopefully they are better than their reputation.

I really feel sorry for this guy, he seems to be 100 % innocent (at least from what I have read).

What is interesting about this case is that Turkey is waiting to be accepted as a member of the European Union. They just can’t afford to get media attention like this, especially from Germany. If student Marco Weiss will not be released anytime soon, could this mean trouble for Turkey and their membership? Other countries might follow in their protests, and soon who knows what will happen.

    I promote my mlm business on Squidoo and have great success with it. Recommended to everyone promoting anything online. Make a good lens with lots of valuable content and people will trust you. And from trust will come sales. Can’t help but love Squidoo! And it’s free! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I agree with you. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have a squidoo lens and it was pretty simple to make once I got the hang of it. I haven’t made any blogs yet so thought that squidoo was sorta a good way to experiment before I made one. Haven’t really had the time yet to really do a whole lot with it but think the idea is great. Anybody is able to make one at no cost and you really don’t need to know any type of web design, etc. for those who don’t. I do have a couple of sites and plan on adding more about them to my lens in the future.:)

    I guess that I need to try Squidoo again. I tried it for some time ago, but I didnร‚ยดt do much about it. Now, due to the traffic squidoo lenses get, I should probably give it another try.

    Thanks for your comments.

    He didn’t kiss a girl honey, he raped a girl… Ofcourse you may not know the difference between kissing or forcing a child to have sex with you, than referr to wikipedia http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marco_Weiss

  5. sorry about that, it wasn't much information available at the time when I wrote the article and I don't read or speak german…

    He wasn't arrested for kissing a local girl. At least get your facts straight before writing about it. She was a 13 year old British girl, and her mother brought the complaint to the Turkish authorities. The same thing would have happened in most states in the US, if the mother of a 13 year old claimed her daughter was raped.

  7. I'll try to defend myself ๐Ÿ™‚

    I read a lot about this case the day it was published in the news and it was a huge buzz on the Internet. There were a lot of rumors, and most of the things I read was about him being accused of kissing a local girl, but then things changed. It wasn't local, and it wasn't about kissing.

    This story, the one I wrote, is close to three years old. I haven't updated it, I just wrote a few thoughts about it when I first read the news. If I had been updating it, and following the case, I would surely have written about the changes that I discovered.

    Again, sorry about this.
