Warning, if are a plaintiff and you are not present and your lawyer does not turn up and does not submit a letter of excuse prior to the hearing, your case is thrown out and the defendant wins. So make sure you can trust your lawyer to turn up on the day.
As for leaving the country, all depends on circumstances and your lawyer will be able to explain that to you. The only reasons why you could be stopped from leaving the country would be a court order being placed on you for non-payment of debts or your being wanted for criminal misdeeds. The debt would have to be considerable i.e. over the 150 000 TL mark. (1998 Supreme Court ruling legislated that it was illegal to prevent foreigners leaving Turkey on the basis of bad debt unless there was a search warrant for criminal affairs or a court order issued).

Not sure if there would be a ban or, not it depends on what the outcome of the court case is. Was anybody in the other vehicle injured? I'm also not sure whether that person would be able to get a Residence Permit as if the case was proved against them they would then have a criminal record.
I hope at some point in the future you will let us know how this person got on.

I have told them they need to seek the advice of a solicitor. Apparently the Turkish person is also being charged with 2 of the same charges as the English person ,

The court case is not until the end of June so a lot of things to be thought about in the interim .!!!

I've just seen a driver travelling 20% over the speed limit, playing loud music, smoking, using a mobile 'phone, and not wearing a seat belt. Hope he realises that if the police spot him he'll be expected to pay fines totalling 421 TL!!
Oh, and he was driving permanently in the left lane. Another 210 TL!
