‘There is a company whose name is hidden even from the Court of Accounts’


CHP Istanbul Deputy Özgür Karabat shared on his social media account that AKP did not give up on rent.

“The lines you will read now show a grave situation beyond how the country was plundered” Karabat said that in 2020, at the time of Abdülkadir Aksu, the leading name of the board of directors at Vakıfbank, 17.4 billion TL came out of the pockets of the citizens, together with ‘loans of loss and other receivables’, ‘non-performing loans’ and ‘loans with limited collection opportunities’. had expressed.

Karabat, in his new post, talked about the energy hit at Vakıfbank.

Explaining that millions of liras were transferred to companies that are affiliates of Vakıfbank, whose names are hidden even in the Court of Accounts, Karabat said, “Vakif Energy and Madencilik AŞ’s loss for the period in 2020 was 1.3 million TL. The company also has a paid-in capital of 85 million TL. But it does not do a single job that will add value to the country and create employment.” used the phrases.

“WE WILL ASK THE ACCOUNT OF EVERYONE!”

Karabat’s explanations are as follows:

“There is a company whose name is hidden even from the Court of Accounts, which is a constitutional institution. This company has deposit accounts of 58.6 million TL in 2020. But there are two interesting points. You will be surprised at what the AKP bank management has done… First, this company has no commercial activity. Secondly, this company has doubtful trade receivables of TL 27.5 million. From which commercial activity does this receivable arise? From whom is there a receivable?

There are 2 companies that are subsidiaries of Vakıfbank. Güney Ege Energy Ltd. Sti. and Vakıf Energy and Mining Inc. Since they are in the same sector, the South Aegean company joins Vakıf Energy in 2001. So far everything is reasonable. But the aftermath is interesting… It is stated that Güney Ege Enerji was established to buy and operate the Yatağan, Yeniköy and Kemerköy thermal power plants in Muğla. The company even gets the tender here. Then a “magic hand” steps in and the tender is cancelled.

When we come to 2014, these 3 important thermal power plants are being privatized. Vakıfbank, under AKP management, pacifies its subsidiaries and weaves the building blocks of the privatization process. Here, instead of defending public assets, they are almost fed to capital. Yatağan power plant was privatized for 1 billion 91 million dollars, Yeniköy and Kemerköy power plants were privatized for 2 billion 671 million dollars. In the past 8 years, it has been understood that the uninterrupted and cheap energy promised in privatization is a lie. Not to mention the damage to the environment!

South Aegean was liquidated in 2020. So, what does Vakıf Enerji ve Madencilik AŞ do? The number of personnel employed by the huge company is only 2 and they were paid 242 thousand TL in 2020. The company has 7 members of the board of directors in return for 2 personnel. Vakıf Energy and Madencilik AŞ’ loss for the period in 2020 was 1.3 million TL. The company also has a paid-in capital of 85 million TL. But it does not do a single job that will add value to the country and create employment.

While there are many companies doing similar works in the public sector, the existence of Vakıf Enerji ve Madencilik AŞ is another question mark. This giant-capital company is kept idle in order to transfer salaries to someone. The Court of Accounts has already given an opinion on its closure. The game between the public bank, capital and politics is not over yet. Hasan Köktaş, who was the President of the Energy Market Regulatory Authority (EMRA) between 2008 and 2014, is currently a board member of Aydem Energy, the owner of Yatağan Thermal Power Plant.

Köktaş, the EMRA President at the time, almost invested in his own future. Elsan Elektrik, which won the tender in Yatağan, is part of Bereket Energy, based in Denizli. This company distributes electricity to the entire Aegean Region. Köktaş, the EMRA President at the time, almost invested in his own future. Elsan Elektrik, which won the tender in Yatağan, is part of Bereket Energy, based in Denizli. This company distributes electricity to the entire Aegean Region.

During the AKP period, this company grew so uncontrollably that it could not manage the business and the budget and came to the point of bankruptcy. Bereket Energy owes billions of TL to banks, including Vakıfbank. Get a honey loan from the public bank Vakıfbank.

Shut down the public company cheap with this money. Then lie on the credit. A true AKP classic. What more privileges AKP has given to this company, of course, will be revealed.

Now let’s look at other power plants… The companies that bought Yeniköy Kemerköy Thermal Power Plants are very familiar. IC İÇTAŞ Energy and LİMAK Energy.

They come out from under every stone. They grew tens of times with the tenders they received during the AKP period. It was a great success in both of these power plants. Before the Yatağan, Yeniköy and Kemerköy power plants are privatized, their capacities are reduced.

Thus, the basis for cheaper sales is laid. After being sold, the increasing demand in the tourism region is shifted to these power plants. The AKP, which does not drop religious and nationalist discourses, puts “patriotism” aside when it comes to public assets. You see how AKP is looting our national wealth by blinding itself for profit. We will hold them accountable!”
