Jailed for rape and murder of his child


A MAN has been jailed for life in the north for raping and killing his seven-year-old son Mustafa last year.

Erol Diker was found guilty on 12 out of 13 charges against him in a case that shocked the Turkish Cypriot community.

The child’s body was found on April 13, 2012 in a mountain area. Five days earlier Mustafa had been reported missing from his home in Mia Milia, just outside Nicosia.

When the body was found the boy’s father, step-mother and uncle were arrested. The step-mother and uncle were sentenced to five years in jail last December on charges of assisting Diker carry out the crime.
