A MAN from Greater Leys in Oxford has appeared in court charged with abducting a boy.

Mustafa Duyus, 46, of Nightingale Avenue, did not put forward a plea during a short hearing at Oxford Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

The child abduction charge relates to an incident at Heathrow last September.

Duyus was released on conditional bail before a preliminary hearing due to take place at Oxford Crown Court on April 25.
