The 64-year-old was detained in June 2018 as part of a crackdown on his group by the financial crimes unit of the police.

A Turkish televangelist who surrounded himself with scantily-clad women on TV was jailed for more than 1,000 years on Monday for sex crimes, local media reported.

Adnan Oktar preached conservative views while women he called his “kittens” — many of whom appeared to have had plastic surgery — danced around him in the TV studio.
