Tat Towers built by late businessman Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı without receiving any bank loans, solely on his own resources, have been kept idle intentionally for years under colour of being ‘‘unlicensed and not earthquake resistant’’. In his announcement put on the November issue of Forbes magazine, late businessman’s youngest son Uğur Tatlıcı stated that Tat Towers should be immediately demolished if they are not earthquake resistant and that he will even undertake the expenses for the demolition.
BUSINESS TOWERS AT THE HEART OF THE CITY CANNOT BE OPENED TO USE SINCE 2009
The twin business towers named Tat Towers which are located at one of the most important transportation zones of the city in İstanbul, have been kept idle abandoned to their fate because of the inheritance cases filed after late Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı’s demise by his children and grandchildren from his first marriage.
THE THINGS DONE BY DECEDENT’S CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN BORN OF HIS FIRST MARRIAGE…
The most significant reason of that is the struggle of ‘‘making things difficult’’ and intentionally keeping Tat Towers idle made against their own father/grandfather’s artefact with a great grudge and hatred during the judicial process by Mehmet Tatlici and Ahmet Tatlıcı (decedent’s children born of his first marriage) and his grandson Salih Ziya Tatlıcı (decedent’s other son born of his first marriage, Ali Tatlıcı’s child), who were dissatisfied with the portion of inheritance.
THE RELEVANT DEPARTMENTS AND MUNICIPALITIES ARE WARNED, ANNOUNCEMENTS PUT ON PAPERS…
Thus, late businessman’s second wife who had been his life partner in sickness and health for 43 years, Nurten Tatlıcı and his son born of this marriage, Uğur Tatlıcı’s applications drawing attention to the dangers that would be aroused by Tat Towers’ dilapidation and demanding that the necessary precautions shall be taken were submitted to both Ministry of Environment and Urbanisation and Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality by their attorneys. (For detailed information about this subject please see. “If Tat Towers Are Risk-bearing, Demolish Them Immediately!” and “Petition to Municipality ‘Take Precautions for Tat Towers!” articles).
Uğur Tatlıcı has also requested that earthquake resistance inspections shall be made at Tat Towers by the announcements he put on the newspapers and stated that they should immediately be demolished for public safety if they turn out to be not earthquake resistant. (For detailed information about this subject please see. “If Tat Towers Are Risk-Bearing, Demolish Them Immediately!” article).
FULL PAGE ANNOUNCEMENT ON NOVEMBER 2014 ISSUE OF FORBES MAGAZINE…

ALL THE FACTS ARE PRESENT AT TATLICI TRUTHS WEB SITE, UNDER THE TITLE “TAT TOWER NEWS”
Actually, all these facts are present with all the details and enclosed evidences in our previously published articles within Tat Towers News section on Tatlici Truths news site.
It would be helpful for the enlightenment of the public to mention some significant points once more here:
MEHMET SALİH TATLICI’S TESTAMENT AND INHERITANCE CASES
The official testament prepared by the decedent when he was still alive in 1994 was revealed after his demise in 2009.
However, the late businessman’s sons born of his first marriage, especially Mehmet Tatlici, Ahmet Tatlıcı and his dead son, late Ali Tatlıcı’s children Salih Ziya Tatlici (Titiz) and Bedriye Kamer Tatlıcı to whom he gave all they have today (said to be worth millions of dollars) did not like the points he ordered in his testament and they filed lawsuits for annulment of the testament and an action for making the inventory of the estate to demand more.
WHAT DID MEHMET SALIH TATLICI ORDER IN HIS TESTAMENT?
Late Mehmet Salih Tatlıcı defeated Ahmet and Ali Tatlıcı, his sons from his first marriage who had physically attacked and threatened him with death, from his inheritance in his testament and he ordered that his other son Mehmet Tatlici and his grandchildren from his first marriage would only benefit from his inheritance at the rate of their protected share.
The late businessman has left rest of his inheritance to his second wife NurtenTatlıcı who had been his life partner in sickness and health for 43 years and his son Uğur Tatlıcı who was born of this marriage.
Under these circumstances, the decedent’s second wife Nurten Tatlıcı and his youngest son Uğur Tatlıcı have the right to say, “We will not give you anything apart from your reserved portion from all the inheritance estates including Tat Towers” to the other heirs during the portion of all the real properties including Tat Towers.
THEY DO THIS WITH THE IDEA OF “IF I CANNOT HAVE IT, NO ONE SHALL HAVE IT”
Mehmet Tatlici, Ahmet Tatlıcı and Salih Ziya Tatlıcı who are well aware of this fact, have done everything in their power to keep Tat Towers idle during the lawsuit process with the mentality of ‘‘if I can’t have it, no one shall have it’’ and they keep trying.
Because they also know that they will not get anything from there…
THEY WANT TAT TOWERS TO BE LEFT TO DECAY
Although Mehmet Tatlici, Ahmet Tatlıcı and Salih Ziya Tatlıcı (Titiz) state that the buildings are unlicensed and are not earthquake resistant (in fact they confessed even they are not sure about that) and thus they cannot be rented at almost all the trials, they also prevent the inspections that would be done regarding this matter.
When late businessman’s youngest son, who was born of his marriage with his second wife Nurten Tatlıcı who had been his life partner for 43 years, Uğur Tatlıcı offered that “If Tat Towers Buildings are not earthquake resistant, the necessary precautions shall be taken and they should immediately be demolished for public safety”, they also said no to that. They also said no to the offers made for the use of external wall of Tat Towers buildings with advertisement purpose. (For detailed information about this subject please see. “Tat Towers’ın Dış Cephesine Neden Reklam Alınamıyor?” and “Tat Towers’a 1.000.000 TL’lik Reklam Teklifi” articles).
THEY MAKE INCONSISTENT EXPLANATIONS EVEN CONTRADICTING THEIR OWN OFFICIAL STATEMENTS…
The tragicomic side of all these is that Mehmet Tatlici, Ahmet Tatlıcı and Salih Ziya Tatlıcı who clearly states that the buildings are unlicensed and not earthquake resistant at almost every trial, adopt such an inconsistent attitude to state in their other inconsistent declarations which are also present in the same court records that they do not have any knowledge about the buildings’ being unlicensed and not earthquake resistant.
Besides, they also reject the inspections that would be made for the buildings which they claim not being earthquake resistant and they have been trying to lengthen the process of lawsuit and keep the buildings idle by these “games” they play. (For detailed information about this subject please see. “Mahkemeye Sunulan Tutarsız ve Çelişkili Beyanlar” article).
Another noteworthy example is that; in spite of claiming for years that Tat Towers are ‘‘unlicensed, not earthquake resistant so they cannot be used for rent” Mehmet Tatlıcı also tries to market Tat Towers which do not belong to him, on his own website… (www.tatlici.com.tr)
Shortly, it is the same Mehmet Tatlıcı who discredits Tat Towers with the one who tries to market them covertly…
All these facts are present in court records. (For detailed information about this subject please see “Mehmet Tatlıcı Oyununu Nasıl Oynuyor?” article)
TAT TOWERS MAY GENERATE AT LEAST 10 MILLION DOLLARS ANNUAL TAX INCOME FOR GOVERNMENT
It is sad that in spite of the great inheritance he left behind, the late businessman lays in his grave in debt because of the inconsistent and contradictory attitude which ‘‘makes things difficult’’ taken by his children born of his first marriage during the judicial process of the lawsuits they filed in order to get more from the inheritance left by their father. Because Tat Towers constitutes a high expense for the decedent’s inheritance in his present state.
The government has 10.000.000 dollar worth tax loss annually from these buildings which would generate 30.000.000 dollar worth income per annum if they were rented.

TAT TOWERS SHOULD BE DEMOLISHED IF NOT EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT, OTHERWISE THEY SHOULD BE OPENED FOR USE
From now on in fact this game should be ended, earthquake inspections should be performed for Tat Towers, and if they are not resistant to earthquake, they should be demolished after the necessary precautions are taken and if they do not bear risk of earthquake, they should be immediately opened for use.
The story about why Tat Towers have been kept idle and left empty for years is briefly like that…
