Originally inducted as Jane Doe, because she refuses to give her name. Her origin is never spelt out - perhaps she is meant to be Turkish and by implication Muslim? The question of her religion is handled rather nervously - she is certainly willing to fight to protect her "prayer book" and scratches Lou's face when she makes a move to take it away from her. She is jailed for causing a death in a car accident while escaping from husband (504). In her despair, she is about to hang herself but is stopped by Pixie Mason (507). When Frank Burke rips her prayer book, she trashes his cell and knocks out Dennis when he discovers her (514). Judy takes the blame for the attack. Myra Desmond effects a reconciliation with her husband Ahmed, and she is bailed out of prison by him (516). After her release, she writes to clear Judy Bryant of the attack on Officer Dennis Cruickshank (532).
Yemil Bakarta was played by actress Maria Mercedes.
