There were “news” in some newspapers on April 14th, 2014. These “news” have been published in different newspapers, but somehow with the same “news discourse”, and the same content with a great “consistency”. Actually, this was the repetition of a known “scenario” that we have witnessed before.
The reason was that there was a lawsuit which tried to be maintained by Mehmet Tatlici with unjustified claims and the hearing date was near. Everything is the same, as it is before every hearing; the same “journalists” were performing “their jobs” with their uniform news…
DISCREDIT THE “COUNTERPARTY”?
All these have become boring in time… What are they trying to do? A fair journalism complying with professional press and journalistic principles and ethics -or- to discredit one of the parties to an ongoing lawsuit?
How comes that the same type of “news” written always by the same “journalists” are published with a great consistency on the same day in these newspapers and in the same manner prior to every new hearing of a lawsuit filed by Mehmet Tatlici?
In this news and commentary, we are going to share the realities behind this “game” with our readers and the public …
WHAT WAS THESE NEWS ABOUT?
“The news” mentioned here is the “re-fictionalizing” of the truth about an exhibition space in the entrance of a hotel in Antalya which has been composed with wooden objects and publicly offered to the visit of customers in the hotel for years in order to establish a different reception in a new manner, but this time as “uniform news”.
When someone who does not know the essence of the matter reads these “uniform news”, he or she may easily make up his/her mind as if there were historical artifacts that are being hidden from public authorities and then they came and confiscated them by an “alleged raid”. The “discourse” of these uniform “news” is exactly intended to establish such a perception. …
Another common sense in these “uniform news” which have been published on the same day is that they did not collect the opinions of the people that they intended to discredit by these “news stories” and with a somehow “uniform news language” …
This “scenario” has been played by the same “journalists” in the same manner before and they have never taken the opinions of the people whom they are accusing.
WHAT IS THE TRUTH?
However, despite the perception that was intended to be established with these “uniform news”, the truth was different:
The wooden objects exhibited in the hotel in Antalya are not historical artifacts. All of them had been purchased at an antique shop named Yılmaz Antik in Istanbul in 1997 by the deceased businessman Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı on behalf of his wife Nurten Tatlıcı and all of them have invoices.
All of these wooden objects have also been registered under the title “movable cultural property” with the Antalya Museum. The Antalya Museum declared with official documents that these wooden objects may be purchased and sold as movable cultural property domestically, but not allowed to be moved abroad.
RESPECT TO THE MEMORY OF THE LATE MEHMET SALIH TATLICI
The deceased businessman Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı was interested in antique works of art. As a result of this interest, he moved these wooden objects that he bought in Istanbul to Antalya with a great care and wanted to exhibit them in a space in the lobby of the Tatbeach Golf Hotel in Antalya in a manner as to be freely visited by the guests of the hotel.
These wooden objects have not been hidden from anyone; on the contrary, they have been exhibited for years in a place where they had been able to be seen by local and foreign guests of the hotel and where they were definitely able to be seen by any tourist staying at the hotel. The wife of the late businessman Nurten Tatlıcı and their son Uğur Tatlıcı maintained this space of exhibition in the same manner in respect for the memory of Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı after his death.
While this is the truth, now let’s take a look at who these journalists are and how they try to deviate these truths towards a different direction by the news language and discourse they established and what they have written in their “uniform news”:
SAME FICTION, DIFFERENT NEWSPAPERS, BUT THE SAME JOURNALISTS…
Who is this “staff” of journalists who try to humiliate the accused party with their uniform news which are always written with a “great consistency” in timing and content before every hearing of a lawsuit that Mehmet Tatlici filed with unjustified and unlawful claims against the second wife of his father, Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı’s second wife and his brother Uğur Tatlıcı from the same father; and at which newspapers do these “journalists” work?
ERCAN ÖZTÜRK, Akşam (now at Güneş Daily)
ERHAN ÖZTÜRK, Sabah
DİNÇER GÖKÇE, Hürriyet
ZÜLFİKAR ALİ AYDIN, Habertürk
For years, these four “journalists” have continued to write on the same day and in the same manner their “uniform news” which target Uğur and Nurten Tatlıcı before every hearing of the lawsuits that Mehmet Tatlici has filed. If that would be one or two times, it would be named as a coincidence, but when there are more than 10 similar “news” from the same “journalists” on the same subjects, we unavoidably think “something is wrong here, but what?” … (See “Tarafsız Medya ne tarafta?”)
A DEVELOPMENT FROM 2,5 MONTHS AGO IS “SOMEHOW” MADE SUBJECT TO NEWS NOW. AND WITH ALMOST THE SAME CONTENT!
The news from April 14th, 2014 with the same content have been published by these journalists, ERCAN ÖZTÜRK, ERHAN ÖZTÜRK, DİNÇER GÖKÇE and ZÜLFİKAR ALİ AYDIN just prior to a hearing related with the lawsuit filed by Mehmet Tatlici…
Another “interesting” issue here is that these 4 journalists of 4 important newspapers, which have an important place in the news agenda in Turkey but are in a massive competition with each other; And, all these four “journalists” act with a really unique “journalistic motivation” and they wrote their uniform “news” related the decision of the Antalya District Administrative Court which was actually taken months before, that was on January 30th, 2014; But, these “journalists” wrote it on the same day, on April 14th, 2014, that means exactly 2,5 months after the date of this court decision…
Why do journalists working at different newspapers, which actually have a fierce competition with each other in Turkey, waited so long and finally they now decided to write and publish this decision of the Antalya District Administrative Court that was taken 2,5 months ago??… Why these “journalists” did not want to write and publish this court decision at that time, but now… Even on the same day, on April 14th, 2014, months after the court decision??
WHERE DO THIS “CONSISTENCY” AND “UNIFORMITY” COME FROM?
The answer to this question clearly shows the “scenario” that is “put on the stage” here:
Because on April 15th and 16th, 2014, the hearing of the lawsuit that Mehmet Tatlıcı raised with unjustified and unlawful allegations against Uğur Tatlıcı, his brother from the same father, and against Nurten Tatlıcı, the second wife of his late father in sickness and health for 43 years…
Let’s make this matter clearer:
These “journalists” are actually working at 4 different newspapers which are in a massive competition with each other.
The Antalya District Administrative Court takes this decision on April 30th, 2014.
Ercan Öztürk, Erhan Öztürk, Dinçer Gökçe and Zülfikar Ali Aydın are “the journalists” who write this same news in four different newspapers and publish it as “uniform news” on the same day, on April 14th, 2014… That means exactly 2,5 months after the date of this court decision which had actually been taken on January 30th, 2014…
WHEN ARE THEY DOING THIS?
On April 15th and 16th, 2014, exactly one/two days before the hearing of the three lawsuits that Mehmet Tatlici tries to maintain with unjustified and unlawful allegations against Uğur Tatlıcı, his brother from the same father, and Nurten Tatlıcı, Mehmet Tatlici’s father’s second wife…
That means, “a news story” from 2,5 months ago is now instantly coming into the “news agenda” of these four “news reporters” exactly on the same day and, written and published on “that same day” again by these same four “news reporters” of four different newspapers (of Turkey) which are in a massive competition with each other…
And, this “coincidence” has come into being again one to two days before the hearing of 3 important lawsuits that Mehmet Tatlici has filed against Uğur and Nurten Tatlici…
NOW, LET’S THINK ABOUT WHY AND HOW COME ALL THESE “STRANGE” COINCIDENCES HAPPEN?
A claim regarding on a PAYMENT of 15.000 Turkish Liras to a reporter named E.Ö. (Do these initials ring a bell?) on a voice-recording file that has also been filed with the case of The Court of Probate…
According to this voice-recording file of a person named Kerim Kavak, in front of the City Hotel in Istanbul, a valuable payment had been made to “one” reporter within an envelope and in return, the texts which have been prepared in “the news form” had been published. Can the allegation on this voice-record file be true? Or is it a slander?
We let the interpretation of this situation to our readers…
BUT THIS BEATS ALL…
The same “journalists” have published their uniform news before in the same manner and on the same dates again prior to similar hearings of the lawsuits that filed by Mehmet Tatlici… Is it possible that this is a coincidence?…
MEHMET TATLICI “DENOUNCED” IT
In “the news” from April 14th, 2014, it is said that the person denouncing that the wooden objects which have been exhibited for years in the hotel in Antalya in front of the eyes of everyone are “historical artifacts” and are “hidden” is Mehmet Tatlıcı…
WHO IS MEHMET TATLICI?
Mehmet Tatlıcı is one of the three sons of the deceased businessman Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı from his first marriage with the daughter of his aunt.
Mehmet Tatlıcı is “the dutiful child” who did not get satisfied with the share of inheritance that his late father left him, actually that share is said to be worth millions of Dollars, and this “dutiful child” raised lawsuits for the annulment of the testament of his father and an action for making the inventory of the estate, immediately after his father passed away; And the same Mehmet Tatlici, “the dutiful child”, did all these in order to get more money … (see the details in the news, “The Fax Message Sent to the Banks Right After Death”).
AGAIN THE SAME NAME: AS KNOWN BY THE PUBLIC, MEHMET TATLICI…
Mehmet Tatlıcı is a party to an inheritance lawsuit that he has filed and this inheritance in question is worth billions of Dollars. The counterparty in this law process are two people that Mehmet Tatlici has been targeted: One of them is Nurten Tatlıcı, the second wife of Mehmet Tatlici’s late father Mehmet Salih Tatlici, and the second one is Uğur Tatlıcı, Mehmet Tatlici’s step-brother from his father’s this second marriage….
A LAWSUIT WITH THE REQUEST OF 16 YEARS OF CONVICTION FOR SLANDER HAS BEEN RAISED AGAINST MEHMET TATLICI
Besides these continuing lawsuits, Mehmet Tatlıcı made exactly 14 criminal complaints and claims against the second wife of his late father and his step-brother, Uğur Tatlıcı from the same father which all resulted in decisions of lack of grounds and rejection.
As a result of these non-stop unjustified, unlawful and groundless allegations of Mehmet Tatlici’s, a lawsuit against Mehmet Tatlıcı has been raised with the request for 16 years of conviction due to slander, and this lawsuit is continuing.
However, all these do not dissuade Mehmet Tatlıcı from these unjustified and groundless allegations, on the contrary feed him to raise new criminal complaints with unfounded allegations with the “same consistency” which target his brother from the same father …
ERCAN ÖZTÜRK WHO IS ONE OF THESE FOUR “JOURNALISTS” TEAM HAS BEEN CONDEMNED BY THE PRESS COUNCIL
The same Mehmet Tatlıcı took the stage again with a series of other groundless allegations as the party of a last lawsuit against the family members whom his father left behind.
This lawsuit is continuing and in the phase of decision. As it is before any hearing, again two days before the hearing with the same content of “news” taking place in different newspapers, and again the counterparty of the lawsuit is trying to be discredited and humiliated with the same discourse and the same photographs in a systematic way.
One of the “journalists” who singed these news is not a surprising name:
ERCAN ÖZTÜRK, who is now clearly registered for having violated the professional codes and ethic principles of press and journalism with his groundless news by the Press Council in Turkey…
MEHMET TATLICI IS PLAYING HIS GAME AS SUCH…
Those playing this game in this manner and becoming an instrument to this “inheritance game” attempt to effect the legal process by trying to create a kind of “counter perception” with their uniform news which they write about Nurten and Uğur Tatlıcı …
If the result that is intended to be reached with all of this is to influence our valuable judges and public prosecutors in Turkey on one side, this means that honest persons of law and public agents in this country are underestimated. Those who think that they can influence our judges and public prosecutors in this county who try to perform justice with all their sincerities in the decision mechanisms of our law system will never be able to obstruct the justice to be served.
Those who think that they deserve the title of a “journalist” will hopefully understand one day which “game” they are being made an instrument to and how they are being stamped by the public.
These “journalists” did not once bother to ask Uğur and Nurten Tatlıcı for their opinion “about this or that news” but try to establish a unilateral perception against Uğur and Nurten Tatlıcı far away from the truth.
WHAT WAS THE INTENT OF THE “UNIFORM NEWS” ON APRIL 14th, 2014?
The same subject in the news are finely processed with similar expressions in a manner as to create a negative perception especially against Uğur Tatlıcı …
What almost of all them have in common is that they try to create the impression that the wooden objects which have been purchased in 1997 from an antiquarian in Istanbul, and brought to the hotel in Antalya and been registered under the title of movable cultural property with the Antalya Museum are “historical artefacts” and thus, these “artefacts” which should be under the protection of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism are tried to be hidden …
FOR INSTANCE, THE NEWS WRITTEN BY ERCAN ÖZTÜRK WITH SIMILAR CONTENTS HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED IN THE NEWSPAPERS AKŞAM AND GÜNEŞ WITH HIS VERY OWN SIGNATURE…
In these news, Ercan Öztürk is continuing his understanding of “journalism” by violating professional and ethic codes of journalism and the press principles which constituted the ground for the previous CONDEMNATION decision of the Press Council Secretary General and the WARNING decision of the Press Council Higher Board:
For instance, Ercan Öztürk says in the announcement of his news titled “Bad news for the Tatlıcıs” on April 14th, 2014 in the newspaper Güneş “The artefacts of the Ottoman era of the Tatlıcı family which they hide in their hotel in Antalya are transferred to the Ministry of Culture”.
IN REALITY, THERE ARE NO HIDDEN OR CONFISCATED “HISTORICAL ARTIFACTS”; ON THE CONTRARY, THEY HAVE BEEN EXHIBITED AT THE SAME PLACE FOR YEARS SINCE THE INTENTION WAS TO SHOW THEM TO TOURISTS AND GUESTS OF THE HOTEL
First of all, there is nothing “hidden” in the hotel in Antalya. With this news discourse, Ercan Öztürk tries to create an impression as if Uğur Tatlıcı whom he depicts as the owner of the hotel hides something, from the Ministry of Culture and Toursim, which should not be there.
Furthermore, those wooden objects are not historical artefacts and all of them have been registered and recorded personally by their owner Nurten Tatlıcı with the Antalya Museum as movable cultural property. These registration certificates have been submitted in the annex to the information of our readers.
Afterwards, Ercan Öztürk, “the journalist”, says in the same news that “the team of Protection of Cultural Assets which have made a raid to the Tat Beach Hotel in Antalya Belek which belongs to Uğur Tatlıcı confiscated historical artefacts from the Ottoman era which were held in a room in the hotel”.
Again Ercan Öztürk is not telling the truth, because nobody made a raid at this hotel and nobody confiscated any wooden objects which are told by him to be historical artefacts from the Ottoman era and be held in a room…
Nobody is hiding anything from anyone. Everything is in its place and maintained just as late Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı has left it. Thousands of tourists every year cross this room and examine it.
ERCAN ÖZTÜRK IS A “JOURNALIST” WHO HAS BEEN REGISTERED BY THE PRESS COUNCIL FOR HAVING VIOLATED PROFESSIONAL PRINCIPLES AND ETHIC CODES OF JOURNALISM
One year ago, Ercan Öztürk wrote a “news” on the same subject at Akşam newspaper by stating that stolen historical artefacts were being hidden in the hotel. Besides the fact that what he wrote was far away from the truth, it was a clear violation of journalism ethics and principles. Therefore, he was charged before the Press Council and the Press Council decided that Ercan Öztürk violated Articles 4, 6 and 9 of the Professional Principles of the Journalism. The Press Council also warned on the same grounds the Akşam newspaper which published this news.
WITH THIS DECISION OF THE PRESS COUNCIL, ERCAN ÖZTÜRK IS NOW A “JOURNALIST” WHO IS REGISTERED AS HAVING CLEARLY VIOLATED PROFESSIONAL PRINCIPLES AND ETHIC CODES OF JOURNALISM.
Therefore, a lawsuit and a compensation claim against Ercan Öztürk due to violating personal rights of people subject to this news had been filed and with the court decision of Istanbul 24th Civil Court of First Instance, Ercan Ozturk and Akşam newspaper were condemned to pay 5000 Turkish Liras each to Uğur and Nurten Tatlici for spiritual damages. And, the same court decided that there was a lawless attack on Ugur and Nurten Tatlici’s personal rights in these news and the decision of the court should be published in three Turkish newspapers with the highest circulation nationwide (See the news, “Reporter Ercan Öztürk to Pay For Spiritual Damages”)
So, it may be seen here that Ercan Öztürk, with his “journalism” which has already been registered as having clearly violated professional press principles and ethic codes of journalism, will probably continue to be the “defendant party” to more lawsuits due to the violation of personal rights of innocent people, if he goes in this way…
So, what will happen to these movable cultural property?
As explained above in detail, another important issue that has to be cleared here is that the exhibition space which actually has been registered and recorded by the Antalya Museum which is an organization with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and consist of wooden objects in the entrance of a hotel in Antalya has been maintained for years by Nurten Tatlıcı, the wife of late Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı, and her son Uğur Tatlıcı as a result of the respect for the memory of late Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı at the same space.
Exactly at this point Mehmet Tatlıcı comes into “the game” and makes a groundless accusation against Uğur and Nurten Tatlıcı, exactly the same way as he has done several times before. This “situation” is reflected by Mehmet Tatlici with his groundless accusations on the court and naturally experts and the representatives of the Antalya Museum come to make examinations at the hotel.
Actually, nothing has been hidden from anybody. Furthermore, it is not possible to hide this large room having a size of 30m2. The said representatives make their normal examinations within the knowledge of the hotel management. As it can easily be seen here, Mehmet Tatlici has always tried to “create” a scene in his “scenario” in order to discredit his father’s second wife and his step-brother…
THEY TRY TO CREATE “MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING”
It has not been decided yet where and how these movable cultural properties which actually consist of wooden objects, since the matter is in the hands of the Council of State now. It should not be forgotten that these objects have been purchased in Istanbul from an antiquary with invoices and be officially registered by their owner Nurten Tatlıcı personally with the Antalya Museum.
When the court, the Council of State and/or the Ministry of Culture and Tourism decides what will be maintained where and how, and then, all these objects may be transported to any place in any manner requested. This will for sure not be a problem for anybody.
Uğur and Nurten Tatlıcı have always stated that they all wish to maintain this exhibition of wooden objects only and only as a respect to the memory of late Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı. Everything has been there for years on the same place where the deceased businessman Mehmet Salih Tatlici left them, and nothing has been hidden from anyone or any authority.
The actual point that must be taken care of here is the fact that Mehmet Tatlici conveyed this with intentional news to the media in a manner as to “much ado about nothing” with the reasoning of mud-slinging as a part of “the game” as stated above.
Because with this reverse perception and the character assassination that is tried to be created here is intended for influencing different lawsuit processes which are continuing.
ATTENTION TO “THE GAMES” OF MEHMET TATLICI!
At this point, we must also understand and see the unbelievable games which Mehmet Tatlıcı is continuing to “put on stage” against Nurten Tatlıcı, the life partner of his late father and his step-brother Uğur Tatlıcı. Mehmet Tatlici is one of the sons from the first marriage of his father, Mehmet Salih Tatlici and this son actually owes everything he owns today, his luxurious life and his richness, to his deceased father…
A real tragedy is present here. Mehmet Tatlıcı is a man who has even filed personally some accusations (with his as usual groundless claims) at the Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Department of Smuggling against his late father Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı, his own father who was actually dead at that time. Naturally, the Chief Public Prosecutor of Istanbul did not find any grounds to investigate these ridiculous accusations of Mehmet Tatlici… (See the news, “Oğul: Müşteki – Merhum Baba: Şüpheli”
Besides the news on the news web site Tatlıcı Truths (Tatlici Gerçekleri), a simple internet research about Mehmet Tatlici will be sufficient enough to understand how he plays all his exemplary games.
Mehmet Tatlici’s lawless, groundless and unsupported accusations since his father died on February 22nd, 2009, targeting Uğur Tatlıcı, his brother from the same father, and Nurten Tatlıcı who starts every day by visiting the grave of her late husband, must come to an end.
HE ALSO SUBMITTED TO COURT PHOTOGRAPHS OF HIS WIFE IN HER BIKINIS
It is really hard to understand all that Mehmet Tatlıcı has done… Here is a man who made his wife, to whom he was married for 25 years and who is the mother of his 2 children, being eavesdropped with a hidden device in their home, and then he filed a divorce, and in the process of the divorce, in order to influence the court and trial process, he submitted to the court (and afterwards served to the media) the photos of his wife and her family taken when they were in bikinis on the beach…
Where does this hatred and hate that is intended to destroy everything and everyone to cross “his path” come from? Is there any scientific or medical explanation for this mood?
It is really hard to understand and to reason in the name of humanity and humankind what it is to try to discredit with this kind of intentional “news” in the media and to try to get innocent people convicted by unjustified allegations against them, (one of them Nurten Tatlıcı, who as a modest housewife continues to mourn the death of her 43-years life partner and husband Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı for over 6 years, and the other one, Uğur Tatlıcı who tries to keep the name and reputation of his late father, Mehmet Salih Tatlici alive by his donations and who also lives a modest life), in a lawsuit hearing which will be held at the 38th Criminal Court of First Instance in Istanbul…
ALL THESE WILL TAKE PLACE IN HISTORY AS EXEMPLARY DOCUMENTS
All those stated above are learned by experience and all the evidence are based on the truth. These will take place in history in this manner and history will reveal those having done all of these.
We will continue to reveal all the truths and real facts for our readers and the public…
