Stripping Manager requires replacement of persecution Prosecutors dropped the case against the pimp Money Talks CEO Osman Uzun. Now strip club owner require million compensation. He feels unjustly persecuted.
This case has damaged my reputation. No replacement can correct the damage I and my family have suffered, says Money Talks CEO Osman Uzun before he says he still going to try by applying for compensation from the state.
Without having finregnet on it yet, I can say that I'm at least going to be four million in lost revenue this year. People will not visit a nightclub whose owner is charged with prostitution and human trafficking, said Uzun.
Charged with pimping In February, the strip club owner charged with pimping after a visitor called police after a night at the club. Police said they thus had a reasonable ground to suspect that there was prostitution in night club. It was launched a large-scale raid, and police seized including computer equipment.
The police will dismiss the charges against pimps strip club owner Osman Uzun. His defense counsel believes Sandnes municipality now has a weaker case before the trial in August, where Uzun plaintiff municipality to deny nightclub licensed café.
In July 2, Eve magazine wrote that the police still were prepared to drop the case. Now the prosecutor arrived at the same conclusion. - The case is dropped on evidence, says Attorney Asbjørn Eritsland to Eve magazine. He believes that the evidence in the case was not enough for a prosecuting reaction.
- But I can not comment on the strength of evidence. In the second case concerning possible breaches of accounting law, I have asked the police to investigate more.
Seen as criminal Uzun is satisfied that pimp case now being dropped, but wants more information from police.
- In the accounting matter, I was not aware that I was charged a second time before I read it in the newspaper, he said.
- After procuring the indictment were submitted from 20 to 25 policemen with emergency uniforms. You would think that they would be on a terrorist exercise. In retrospect, many of the customers stopped coming here because they would not associate with anyone engaged in criminal activity. This has led to turnover halved. I lose 300 to 400,000 dollars each month in relation to earnings last year, said strip boss further stated that Money Talks had over two million in profit last year.
- I can not take vacations anymore. As soon as I'm away for a few days thinking people just "jaja now Osman went to prison." People think we're closed. He believes police undercover agent from the hotel across the road. Typically, night clubs and patios visited by inspectors bestow 7-8 times annually. We are visited 4-5 times a month. This is a witch hunt, says Uzun.

Wrongful persecution Stripping CEO's lawyer, Svein Kjetil Lode Svendsen, makes it clear that his client is entitled to compensation.
- This case has been a strain for him both personally and financially. The Penal Code has a separate section that deals with unjustly persecution and we will take care of, he said.
The lawyer will seek redress by writing a letter to the police to document the investigation they have done.
- The matter will then be sent to civil administration. It can take up to 18 months before we have an answer, he says.
Lode Svendsen, however, will wait to send the application.
- Firstly I must give priority to bestow the matter next month, said the lawyer.
