Turkish chef ‘Salt Bae’ fined for threatening to kill employee

The incident occurred in 2015 and former chef Kandil then filed a suit against Gokce.

The Istanbul 23 Penal Court of First Instance has found in his favour, punishing Gokce with a fine of 35,000 Turkish lira (£4,540) for verbal assault.

He also has to serve 5 years of 'supervised liberty' which will mean regular checks by police, although it is unclear how this will affect his international travel.
