1. The Allegation that the Proposals in the Reports of the TCA were not taken into account
The argument that “the warnings and proposals in the Court of Accounts reports were not taken into account” regarding the accident that occurred in the Amasra Directorate of Turkish Hard Coal Institution in Bartın is not without fault.
The information contained in the report under the heading “Combating Respirable and Explosive Dust” has been distorted and subject to disinformation.
In the news in some media organs, the general information in the TCA report was interpreted as “the risk of a firestorm explosion has been detected”. Information on the implementation of regulations and legislation in mines refutes all arguments.
In mines, dust samples are regularly taken from underground points in order to guide efforts with explosive dust. In case the results are high, washing and stone dusting work is carried out.
In this context;
72 thousand kilograms against 53 thousand 988 tons of production in 2017,
63 thousand kilograms against 46 thousand 841 tons of production in 2018,
53 thousand 500 kilograms against 51 thousand 763 tons of production in 2019
stone dust sprinkled.
In addition, 25 water dams were established. Although the ash rate in the samples is 65 percent in the legislation, it was realized as 80 percent.
Therefore, contrary to the arguments, the proposals in the TCA reports were taken into account, and even more precautions were taken than required by the legislation.
2. The Allegation that Necessary Improvements Have Not Been Made After the Soma and Ermenek Accidents
The thesis that the necessary studies on prevention and control were not carried out after the mining accidents that occurred in previous years and that no progress was made is not true.
After the accidents, a total of 200 kilometers of “Life Lines” were established in underground openings in all institutions. In addition, Underground Personal Rescuer Mask Exchange Stations were created. In addition, regulations on occupational safety have been made in the relevant legislation. Although 1 A class occupational safety specialist is foreseen for at least 250 persons, a total of 160 occupational safety specialists have been assigned to 6,000 persons working underground in the institution.
Risk assessment obligation has been introduced for all business steps. It was necessary to have sensors measuring methane, oxygen, temperature and air velocity underground. In addition, the application is carried out in accordance with the decision that there should be at least 1 mobile gas measuring device in each team that works independently.
3. Allegation that the Institution’s Deportation Directive has not been Implemented
The claim that ‘the discharge directive was not taken into account’ regarding the mining accident in Bartın is not without fault.
The said directive has been prepared on the basis of the Regulation on Occupational Health and Safety in Mining Workplaces published in the Official Gazette No.
In the report prepared by the Court of Accounts in 2019, a general approach was made against possible risks. The statement “The decisions of the Institutional Degagement Directive must be implemented meticulously” is for informational purposes, not for determination.
All processes of the institution within this scope are audited and meticulously monitored by the Ministry of Labor Labor Inspection Agency and MAPEG teams. Mining activities are carried out in full compliance with the Institution’s Discharge Directive stated by the Court of Accounts.
4. Alleged that Turkey Treated 92 Refugees Awful
The thesis of Notis Mitarachi, Greek Minister of Immigration and Asylum, who uses social media as a tool to spread disinformation, that “Turkey treated 92 refugees badly” is not true. On the other hand, Greece’s inhuman treatment of refugees is documented.
In the reports prepared by human rights and aid organizations, it is mentioned that at least 2 thousand refugees have died due to the wild prevention methods of EU countries.
Legal Center Lesvos, a non-governmental organization operating in Greece, brought the inhuman practices of Greece to the ECHR. The ECHR decided that the Greek forces, which sank the refugee boats, violated the 2nd and 3rd elements of the European Convention on Human Rights, and registered the torture and massacres of Greece.
According to the EU Anti-Corruption Office (OLAF) Report, Greek coastal security is pushing migrants back into Turkish territorial waters with inhumane formulas. Frontex, the institution responsible for the protection of the EU’s external borders, covers up these illegal activities of the Greek forces.
The ill-treatment of refugees by the Greek forces was widely covered in the 2021 Greece Report of Human Rights Watch. According to the report, Greek authorities are using criminal investigations to harass and intimidate groups investigating the ill-treatment of immigrants.
Some of the refugees, whose clothes were taken off and pushed back by the Greek forces, froze to death. Refugees who were saved by Turkey’s humanitarian efforts, on the other hand, felt the torment of the Greek forces; they told many times that they were actually sent back to Turkey after their clothes, money and phones were taken.
While the blood-curdling images aroused the world public opinion, the Greek authorities did not make any effort to prevent the atrocities. With the increasing pressure of the international community, Greece spreads disinformation in order to escape responsibility for the atrocities experienced.
5. “Ministry of Justice Conceals Child Abuse Information”
The thesis “The Ministry of Justice has been hiding child abuse information for 6 years” is not true.
The Named Statistics book, published annually by the Ministry of Justice, contains data on misdemeanors and penalties, including child abuse. Data pertaining to justice statistics are collected by the General Directorate of Named Registry and Statistics from stakeholder institutions such as the UYAP Information System, the Constitutional Court, the Presidency of the Supreme Court, and the Presidency of the Council of State.
Statistics produced with this information are presented to the public’s attention every year by turning them into tables and graphs.
6. ”Muhtars Register Foreigners in the Population Register without a Method”
The claim in a television program that “Muhtars register foreigners in the civil registry without proper manners” is not true.
With the Law No. 5490, since 2006, the headmen have not been involved in the address registration processes.
In our country, all address registration processes of our citizens and foreigners with legal status are carried out by the Population Directorates and Provincial Directorates of Migration Management.
7. “WhatsApp Read Receipts”
The theses about “WhatsApp read receipts” shared from some social media accounts are not truth.
WhatsApp’s “read receipt” checkmarks are as outlined in the WhatsApp Help Center.
In the WhatsApp application, 3 checkmarks are not the subject of words, there is no such application.
8. Alleged that a Girl Student Was Harassed and Attacked with a Knife in Niğde
The argument that a female student was harassed and attacked with a knife at Niğde Ömer Halisdemir University is not true.
Upon the argument of the young university student, the police teams scrutinized the security camera recordings at the time of the call to the Emergency Call Center.
It has been determined that there was no random attack after the scanning of approximately 120 camera recordings.
Arguing that she was attacked, the young girl confessed in her verbal and written word that she produced this scenario in order not to study at the university and to return to her family.
9. “Official Opening Ceremony for Five Portable Toilets in Tunceli”
The thesis of “The official opening ceremony was held for five portable toilets in Tunceli”, which was shared in some media and social media accounts, is not without mistakes.
The images belong to the presentation of the agricultural irrigation projects, animal drinking water facilities, pasture improvement projects, pasture and highland road projects with a price of 15 million TL in Tunceli, and the representative opening of the completed projects.
Within the scope of the program, portable life containers that will facilitate the life of producers in the highlands were delivered to Tunceli Sheep and Goat Breeders’ Association.
The images taken during the delivery of the containers were distorted and served as “toilet opening”.
