In Turkey, even apartment managers can declare a ‘state of emergency’

0

A widely shared social media post suggests that even apartment superintendents have begun to take advantage of the post-coup emergency rule in order to suppress dissent.

While the authenticity of the post has yet to be verified, Turkey Purge is publishing it with the understanding that absurdity is Turkey’s new normal, given the fact that even a football referee was arrested on coup charges.

“My dear neighbors,” Yetkin Güler, reportedly an apartment manager, said at the beginning of an announcement to the residents of his building. What follows is a translation of the full text of the announcement.

“• The manager is the only person with the authority to arrange a meeting at the building, and as manager, I will hold a meeting very soon with regards to an examination of the accounts.
• There exists no committee called the ‘executive board’ in the regulations. For this reason, a complaint will be filed with the Public Prosecutor’s Office against those who made a call for a meeting on Dec. 3 and 10, and against those who signed the call in support.
• Don’t forget that our country is still ruled under a STATE OF EMERGENCY. Therefore, we must be very careful.
• Those who still try to honor the memory of July 15 will not be allowed to do so.”
