26 February 2014

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan‘s dialogue with his son Bilal about their corruption

Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdoğan: “The recordings are a vile attack on the position of Prime Minister.”

Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has angrily condemned as fabricated an audio recording that appears to show him talking to his son about hiding large sums of money.

He said the recording, allegedly tapped and then posted on social media, was a “treacherous attack”.

It appears to reveal Mr Erdoğan asking his son Bilal to dispose of millions of euros in cash from a house.

Anti-government protests erupted in Istanbul following the disclosures.

Turkey’s main opposition party, the Republican People’s Party (CHP), has denounced the recordings and demanded the prime minister’s resignation.
Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Istanbul’s Kadikoy district on Tuesday chanting “Tayyip Erdoğan the thief”. They were later dispersed by riot police using tear gas and water cannon.

The BBC’s James Reynolds says householders in anti-government neighbourhoods were heard banging pots and pans as they did during the Gezi Park protests of May and June last year.

The recordings, which could not be independently verified, were said to be of four conversations dating back to 17 December, when the sons of three ministers and business allies of the prime minister were detained in a high-level corruption investigation.

Correspondents say that the inquiry has presented a major challenge to Mr Erdoğan‘s 11 years in power ahead of key local elections in March.

Cagil Kasapoglu from BBC Turkish says that, interestingly, neither the prime minister nor his party’s spokespeople have denied that the voices on the recording belong to Erdoğan and his son.

Their statement so far is that their voices were “montaged” to implicate them, our correspondent says.

During the conversation, a voice can be heard discussing how to reduce the funds to “zero” by distributing them among several businessmen.

At one point, the second voice says some 30 million euros ($40m/£24m) remains to be disposed of.

Translated from Mathijs Hendrix in Belgium:

Brokering ISIS oil is in the hands of Turkey

Friday, November 27th, 2015

The main source of revenue for the Islamic State (ISIS) is the proceeds from the sale of oil from northern Iraq. The largest consumer of ISIS oil is Turkey, the country that recently brought down a Russian fighter plane.

A leading role among these dubious middlemen is reserved for Bilal Erdoğan, the son of the Turkish president. He moved in 1999 to the US and attended a Master’s program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, part of Harvard University. After graduation he worked as an intern at the World Bank in 2006; then, he returned to Turkey, became a businessman and is now co-owner of the BMZ Group, a maritime transport company.

In the run-up to the Turkish presidential elections of 2014 a major political corruption scandal unfolded. It turned out there was money laundering and bribery around procurement of construction projects and some family members of ministers from the cabinet of then Prime Minister Erdoğan were arrested. Despite the fury of the prime minister further research into the affair discovered the name of Bilal Erdoğan. He is said also to have been involved in this corruption scandal but the case was closed for unknown reasons and 350 investigators, including the attorney general, were fired on the spot.

According to Turkish opposition parties Bilal Erdoğan is now involved in the trade in oil which ISIS looted in Iraq and Syria. He owns several docks in Beirut in Lebanon and Ceyhan in Turkey and he commutes the ISIS oil via these ports to Turkey with tankers leased from Japan. Erdoğan is also said to have agreements with European maritime transport corporations to then ship this oil to various Asian countries. The opposition parties also accuse Erdoğan of complicity by keeping the scandals involving his son under wraps at all costs. Meanwhile, ISIS is the richest terrorist group in the world.

“President Erdoğan claims that according to international conventions there are no legal violations related to the activities of his son. He does normal business with companies registered in Japan, but in fact Bilal Erdoğan is up to his neck complicit in terrorism. As long as his father is boss in Turkey, he is immune from prosecution.” This explained Gürsel Tekin of the CHP [opposition] party last summer.

In October last year US Vice President Joe Biden accused the Erdoğan regime of supporting ISIS with “hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons.” He said this during a speech at Harvard University. A day later the Turkish president demanded an apology and then Biden apologized. The US government is far from guiltless in this.

Meanwhile, the European Union is strengthening its relations with Erdoğan and talks about Turkey joining the EU have resumed. It looks more and more like the mafia rules. To be continued.
