I had contract with the comedian to perform at comedy evenings in Turkey but he was not funny and broke agreed conditions as to avoidance of adult humour so was fired without pay. He has since then defamed me in public, including on Facebook and been reported in "The Scotsman"

Thank you.

If this was in Turkey then there are clearly jurisdictional issues here which were not immediately apparent.

I will opt out and try to transfer this to another category for you.

I think the plan to perform in Turkey is irrelevant. The defamation is all in Scotland and an English web portal :CHORTLE as well as on Facebook
