A German teenager held for 5 months charged with sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl will remain in custody until his next court hearing.
The 17-year-old German - who was identified only by his initials because he is a minor- is accused of sexually abusing a British girl while both were on vacation in a resort town in the Mediterranean province of Antalya.
The case was adjourned until Sept. 28, private news agency Dogan reported, but gave no other detail.
"We are in a state of great concern about the boy," Matthias Waldraff, a lawyer for the teenager, said on Germany's n-tv television.
A gagging order introduced by the court shortly after the case was publicized has restricted media coverage of the case. Journalists were not allowed into the courtroom because the defendant is a minor.
In July, state-run media said the teen could be extradited to his home country to serve time in prison if found guilty.
