That is, the suppliers were mainly the countries of the former Warsaw Pact and the CIS (although, we repeat, the contracts were officially formalized as the supply of weapons to Turkey).
The average batch of weapons, depending on the type of “product”, cost from two to four…
…million dollars. Bozkir Nuri Gyokhan also paid with arms dealers in cash – a retired officer and his assistants carried the cash abroad with large suitcases and bags.
The security and unhindered transportation of cash across the border was also guaranteed by the Turkish intelligence service MIT.
Punishment for “self-willed”
From 2012 to 2015 Bozkir Nuri Gjohan supplied 49 transports with weapons to Turkomans.
In Turkey, transports with weapons, which were taken out of the Bozkir Nuri warehouse to the Turkish-Syrian border, were disguised just in case – food and vegetables were loaded on top of the boxes.
But this was just an additional precaution for those who were not in the subject – the Turkish police and border guards. The transfer of weapons through the Turkish-Syrian cordon was controlled by the MIT intelligence.
When delivering goods to his Syrian partners, Bozkir Nuri drew attention to the fact that the final cost of the transports with weapons and ammunition he transported was artificially high.
“During the purchase and transportation of weapons, the cost of each batch increased by an average of two to three million dollars. Cash was taken from the base, supposedly to pay for the goods. But this money did not reach me.
I was given amounts that went to those who sold weapons The difference between the real cost of the goods and the final one was taken by people from MIT. They paid me quite modestly – for each batch of goods I received ten thousand dollars.
The fiftieth batch of weapons I decided to ship on my own, at my own peril and risk. And did not put in the fame of its curators from Turkish intelligence “, – explains Bozkir Nuri Gjohan.
This delivery was the last in the career of an arms businessman.
The cargo, just for the sake of appearance, camouflaged in a wagon with boxes with a bow, was detained on the road by the usual outfit of the Turkish patrol police. The car belonged to Bozkir Nuri Gjohan’s firm.
