Well, what do you know?
A Turkish shopkeeper has been banned from selling alcohol and told he can only have his licence back if he starts speaking English.Oh, it’s different now, is it...?
Hasan Sengoz, who runs Mesapotamia, in York Place, Brighton, was hit with the unusual ban this week after being caught serving under 18s three times in five months.
He claimed he had been unable to question customers about their ages properly because he only spoke Turkish.Of course he did, of course he did....
When The Argus visited Mr Sengoz yesterday he was unable to speak about the situation. He took a telephone number and said he would ask his English-speaking daughter to contact the newspaper but she did not call.Heh..
