‘I don’t know the full circumstances of how he was found guilty of killing his wife. But the man I knew wasn’t like that all. He didn’t have a care in the world and was lovely.

‘He was an entrepreneur and did very well for himself but things obviously went very wrong for him.

‘I would have liked to have seen him serve his sentence in an English prison really because you hear all sorts of stories about these foreign prisons.

‘Forty-nine is no age. It’s a tragic end to his life, firstly to be jailed in Turkey and then to die there.’
