Abstract

To understand the concept of "serious crime' based on the Turkish Obligation Code (TOC) 29511, a dual distinction must be made to express the reason for a donee committing a serious crime against a donor or one of his/her relatives. The first distinction required is "crime' and the second is"serious."When a donation is withdrawn, the offense committed by the donee is characterized as "crimein terms of criminal law.To evaluate whether the offending act is a crime or not with reference to criminal law is sufficient.
