The net widens. It seems there is now an arrest warrant out for the big boss of the mining company, Alp Gürkan, and the police have been unable to find him at the first two addresses they have gone to.

Meanwhile workers at the mine have gone on strike and are refusing to go underground until working conditions are improved.

This photograph is being widely circulated on social media throughout the world. It shows the advisor of Turkish PM Erdogan & Deputy Chief of the Cabinet, Yusuf Yerkel, kicking a protestor in Soma after the mine disaster.


Yusuf Yerkel has obtained a seven-day doctor's report due to injury in his right knee (presumably as a result of delivering that kick)! Unbelievable but true.

The doctor who issued that medical report is under investigation by the Turkish Medical Association, and may be temporarily struck off for issuing a false medical report.

We'll just sit back with the popcorn, because when they do find him, he will sing like a canary about the corruption money he paid to Erdogan and his cronies for the licence. :lol: :lol:

I hope he does...

This incident and in particular the political response demonstrates that under the current regime All EU entry negotiations should stop.

Video of the advisor of Turkish PM Erdogan and Deputy Chief of the Cabinet, Yusuf Yerkel, kicking the protester.

The sequence of events looks like the protester kicks a car in PM Erdogan's cortege, is grappled to the ground and then Yerkel appears out of nowhere to take the wildest of kicks at the protester...



( Yerkel has claimed he kicked the protester by way of defending himself... :roll: )

There is speculation that the true number of dead in this disaster is 722.

He is no longer wanted - the competent court has ruled that he is not a suspect.

The Turks have found a scapegoat...

Soma Mine Disaster: Pro-Erdogan Newspaper Blames Jews for Death of 300 Miners

A pro-government Turkish newspaper has been accused of publishing an anti-Semitic article with the lead headline "The boss's son-in-law is a Jew" in reference to the owner of the Soma mine in which 301 people were killed.

Yeni Akit, a controversial conservative paper that has been criticised for its hate speech and extremist agenda in the past, accused Soma Holding CEO Alp Gurkan of a sinister Jewish conspiracy involving Israel in Turkey's worst mine disaster.

"While the cartel media, which have Jewish partners, and the parallel media, which are in love with Jews, and the Western media guided by Jews are accusing the prime minister over the Soma disaster, it has been revealed that the son-in-law of Alp Gürkan, the owner of the mining company that is responsible for the disaster, is a Jew named 'Mario Asafrana,' and he changed his name to 'Mahir'," reads the article according to a translation by Today's Zaman.

Other columns related to the conspiracy read: "Did the 'Jewish son-in-law' play a role in the parallel media's attack on Erdoğan?" and "All info on Soma incident leads us to Israel".
