Turkish mafia boss and former ally of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been releasing videos on his YouTube channel dishing out an enormous amount of dirt on the people close to President Erdogan within his party.
It has gained massive traction within the Turkish public with millions of views each video and according to polling 52.6% of people believe the allegations while 68.9% believe the relationship between the mafia and politics continues to remain a problem today.
Interestingly, the videos haven’t been banned in Turkey, which has shown no hesitation in the past to ban YouTube and other platforms which are critical of Erdogan. That being said as well, it is also very interesting a crime boss is able to make a YouTube channel and the views generally aren’t being stifled, much less banned, which one would think would happen given he is a crime boss which surely goes against YouTube’s terms of service.
Currently there isn’t enough evidence to formally say that Sedat Peker is doing this because of foreign powers who may want Erdogan gone, but it is worth noting he is in exile in the UAE, who is an adversary of Turkey. Of course with that being said Erdogan’s involvement in things such as the ISIS oil trade has long since been exposed. Whatever the motives of this crime boss are, he is keeping his cards close to himself and not telling what support he has in Turkish institutions as well as internationally, while playing figures in the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) off against each other.
The serious crimes in which are alleged to have taken place by Sedat Peker reportedly occurred in super posh marina on the Turkish coast, hotels and business centers in Istanbul and Ankara, as well as in the casinos in Turkish occupied Cyprus.
Those who are mainly implicated include Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu, who seemed to have just disappeared, former Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, and former Interior Mininster Mehmet Agar. While less important individuals implicated include Members of Parliament and journalists linked with the ruling party.
Sedat Peker alleges that during a Turkish police investigation he was given a tip off by Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu, which allowed him to leave the country. Soylu is the most embattled of the Turkish officials currently being implicated in these crimes.
Peker alleges he sent his brother Atilla to kill Turkish Cypriot journalist Kutlu Adali in 1996 who was shot dead but his killers weren’t found. However, Sedat Peker alleges that former Interior Minister Mehmet Agar ordered the killing and that furthermore he is linked to the murder of Ugur Mumcu another journalist who was killed in a car bombing in 1993.
He alleges that Mehmet Agar’s son raped and murdered a journalist in 2019 in a brutal killing that has never been brought to justice.
According to Sedat Peker ex Prime Minister Binali Yildirim is linked to drug traffickers and that he went to Venezuela earlier this year on drug trafficking business.
With the route of drug trafficking via Colombia to Turkey being much tougher he says that the route goes from Venezuela to Turkey with the goal of the drugs being trafficked into the Middle East mainly.
It is expected that Sedat Peker will be addressing things regarding the Turkish-Azerbaijani billionaire Mubariz Mansimov, who before Putin and Erdogan made up in 2016, was accused by the Russians of having connections to the ISIS oil trade. Mansimov fell out with Russian state owned energy company Lukoil as well as Azerbaijani state owned energy company SOCAR, and was accused by Erdogan of connections to Fetullah Gulen. Mansimov turned to Peker for protection.
Sedat Peker claims further government and crime figures in order to keep businesses in line in Turkey, prepare files on businesses claiming they are connected with Fetullah Gulen. It is used as blackmail against these businesses as Turkish courts are firmly in the hands of the Turkish President.
On Sunday Mr. Peker says he will be releasing a new video detailing even more bombshell allegations against people close to President Erdogan.
It is unclear as to what will ultimately happen as a result of these videos, but it seems almost certain that Suleyman Soylu, who hasn’t been getting a lot of support from fellow AKP members, and who was at one point a potential future leader of the party, he will likely be a casualty of this. He really didn’t help himself on a recent national television debate where he not only struggled to defend himself against the allegations, but he also said millions of Turks watch child pornography.
