1⃣ Images of a future past.
The similarities of what happened in Hellas 🇬🇷🇪🇺 after the 2008 economic crisis and what is happening in Turkey 🇹🇷 today.
Why crony capitalism has always the same result.
2⃣ Yesterday i made a thread against the “Left that never was”, the people and the organizations that pretend to be left wing but actually what they are is deniers of facts and reality
Today the “Right that never was” -> Crony Capitalism
3⃣ Every good scam starts with beautiful pictures and impressive marketing.
This photo is from the twitter account of Ali Murat Ersoy.
Who is Ali?
And who else is named Ersoy in Turkish🇹🇷 politics?
4⃣Let’s start with Mehmet Nuri Ersoy
Minister of Culture and Tourism of The Republic*
Completed his secondary education in the Deutsche Schule, he studied Business Administration in English language at Constantinople University
5⃣ In 1991, he founded the tourism company “Ersoy Turistik Servisleri” (ETS) together with his twin brother Murat.
More companies in the tourism branch followed with “Voyage Hotels Group” in 1999,
“Didim Tur” in 2001
and the airline company Atlasjet
6⃣On July 9, 2018, the newly “elected” Dictator of Turkey🇹🇷 Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced his cabinet of the new Turkish🇹🇷 political system*
Mehmet Ersoy was appointed Minister of Culture and Tourism
Let’s meet now his twin brother Ali.
7⃣ Before we continue let’s refresh what Crony Capitalism is,
“an economic system in which businesses thrive not as a result of risk, but rather as a return on money amassed through a nexus between a business class and the political class.”
8⃣Nepotism is favoritism that is granted to relatives in various fields, including business, politics, entertainment, sports religion and other activities
The term originated with the assignment of nephews to important positions by Catholic popes and bishops
9⃣Ali got in to the family business, hotels and the Airline, he was the Chairman of Atlasjet’s Board of Directors
Atlasjet operated scheduled domestic and international passenger services as well as charter flights, mostly out of its base in Constantinople
🔟It operated charter flights from Antalya and Constantinople on behalf of travel agencies, mainly from Germany🇩🇪, and especially Öger Tours.
Also worked with travel agencies from Switzerland🇨🇭, Israel🇮🇱, Italy🇮🇹, and the Netherlands🇳🇱
1⃣1⃣On February 7, 2005 an Airbus A320 of Atlasjet fell off the road at Ataturk Airport, Constantinople, due to slippery from heavy snowfall.
None of the 164 passengers and 6 crew members were injured.
1⃣2⃣On November 30, 2007 Atlasjet Airlines Flight 4203 from Constantinople to the Turkish🇹🇷 city of Isparta crashed shortly before landing
57 people were killed the 7 crew member, the 49 official passengers & a 6-month-old baby not counted during boarding
1⃣3⃣Ali Murat Ersoy was involved
“It was not found convincing that Atlasjet’s boss Ali Murat Ersoy accused the executives of the accident, of “wrong plane selection”
The prosecutor said, “Ersoy is Responsible” and a former manager said “He sent the plane”
1⃣4⃣ To overcame this Atlasjet was re branded as AtlasGlobal, at 31 March 2015
But the troubles of bad management did not get away
1⃣5⃣ 29/06/2015 “Hoteliers from occupied north Cyprus are very angry with Murat Ersoy
made a written statement & reacted to the statements of Murat Ersoy, Atlasglobal Chairman of the Board and Deputy Chairman of the Board of ETS Tur, about Cyprus tourism”
1⃣6⃣ As usual in Crony Capitalism, the brother of the Culture and Tourism Minister although a BAD manager gave speeches at Turkish🇹🇷 Universities about on the past and today of the aviation sector…..
25 November 2016
1⃣7⃣ “Nepotism is favoritism that is granted to relatives in various fields, including business, politics, entertainment, sports religion and other activities”
This is from the Facebook page of Ali Murat Ersoy’s Elexus Hotel in occupied Northern Cyprus
1⃣8⃣ And this is publicity tweet from new years eve 2016 party at his new then hotel.
The persons at the photographs are part of a new saga
1⃣9⃣ Mahmut Bozkurt his business partner, father-in-law and real owner of the hotel is at the center
2⃣0⃣ This is a long story of Nepotism, crimes and immorality
Mahmut Bozkurt, the owner of Elexus Hotel, made a statement regarding the allegations that his children made an illegal betting organization.
2⃣1⃣ Claiming that they were the victims of an unprecedented plot, Mahmut Bozkurt made heavy accusations against Murat Ersoy, the boss of AtlasGlobal

2⃣2⃣ Murat Ersoy accused his father-in-law and owner of Hotel Elexus, Mahmut Bozkurt, that his children made a betting organization by using the tourism facility and hotel, a conspiracy based on “confidential witness”
2⃣3⃣ The owner of Hotel Elexus Mahmut Bozkurt, accused the husband of his daughter Murat Ersoy that he is a ‘FETOist’
Also that he is a secret shareholder in many companies in Switzerland🇨🇭, and tried to export his Hotel shares
Tourism Minister Ersoy’s brother dismissed 250 laborers at his hotel!
Nearly 250 laborers were dismissed at the hotel in occupied Cyprus belonging to Murat Ersoy, the brother of Culture and Tourism Minister Mehmet Ersoy
2⃣5⃣ Is that all?
On 26 Nov 2019, AtlasGlobal announced a temporary suspension of all flights due to a restructuring of the airline
It was further announced that all ticket sales would be suspended until 16 Dec 2019 with flights planned to resume by 21 Dec
2⃣6⃣ On 29 Jan 2020, it has been announced that AtlasGlobal returned their sole two Airbus A330-200s to their lessors
On 12 February 2020, Atlasglobal filed for bankruptcy and halted its operations immediately
2⃣7⃣ Did Murat Ersoy pay his former employees?
He promised to pay until 31 August 2020
And never did.
He asked for a new date September 7.
2⃣8⃣ These are his former employees protesting in front of one of his houses.
“IF I CAN’T TAKE MY LABOR, YOU WILL HAVE DIFFICULTY TOO!”
Gülçin Ersoy, his mother, went to the window
If you do not want to be disturbed, tell your son to pay 2000 workers!”
2⃣9⃣ “I don’t care if your bankruptcy is real or fake anymore!
The company is yours, but the labor is ours!
Our request from you is very simple, pay our rights !!”
3⃣0⃣ Turkey🇹🇷 is a Terr0r State.
