Best known for representing Venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramírez ‘Carlos the Jackal’ Sánchez and the Islamic militant terrorist group İBDA-C leader Salih Mirzabeyoğlu, lawyer Hasan Ölçer has been assigned as the trustee to 3 of the 22 Koza İpek Holding companies seized by the government.
On Monday, Ankara moved to seize Koza İpek Holding, which owns several media properties critical of the government, in the lead-up to the Nov. 1 snap election.
Upon a request by the Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office Monday evening, the Ankara 5th Criminal Peace Magistrate ordered Koza İpek Holding be put under receivership, with a variety of pro-government trustees appointed to replace the current board of directors.
22 companies belonging to Koza İpek Holding have been seized, with about 2-3 trustees to be appointed for each one.
One of these trustees, lawyer Hasan Ölçer, is best known for representing Venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramírez ‘Carlos the Jackal’ Sánchez and the Islamic militant terrorist group İBDA-C leader Salih Mirzabeyoğlu.
The companies Ölçer has been appointed to are food firm ATP Koxa Gıda Tarım ve Hayvancılık AŞ, construction firm ATP İnşaat ve Ticaret AŞ and publishing firm Koza İpek Basın ve Basın Sanayi Ticaret AŞ.
In a 2011 speech in İstanbul, Ölçer had defended Carlos the Jackal, describing him as a “symbol of the honorable struggle against imperialism and Zionism.” Hmmmm.......Turkey is quickly becoming a hellhole like Iran. Read the full story here.
