Re: Smyth murder update

While i feel very sorry for the death of this boy and his parents i dont think the police would play down sutch a incident so as not to damage the tourist trade being a yabanci myself the couple of times that i have had occasion to need police help they have been there in a matter of minutes and have been extreemly helpful and reassuring , as for Russia being a major source of income i think im right in saying its quite the opposit Turkey buys its gas from Russia and there are more Russian prostitutes here than any other country sending back vast sums of Turkish money in the form of US dollars ! If the police are quiet on this case then they are working on it undercover dosnt need press coverage

Re: Smyth murder update

If the police are trying to keep it quite there would be a genuine reason and upsetting a tourist apple cart would not be it.

Good afternoon

I understand from a former colleuge of Rob Maffin that he took a substantional amount of money from Mr Smythe and did nothing to help

The man is a menace.

Re: Smyth murder update

We all bow to your expert knowledge! In the 6 years I have lived here, I know of 3 incidents that were not given the amount of publicity that they should have been and ALL connected with tourism. It is quite natural for them to want to hush it up. I too, have found the police very helpful when needed, so don't see how that part of your post is relevant to this case. Up until yesterday, 2011, all murders, as far as I am aware, are given press coverage, quite rightly so, irrespective of whether or not the police are working undercover. Russia IS a major source of income for Turkey, and gas and prostitution, unbelievably, are not the only 2 trades between the two countries but of course, you are welcome to do your research on the economic trends between the two countries, covering industry and international trade. Both countries are doing extremely well out of each other at the moment.

Re: Smyth murder update

It gets worse. A centre page spread in the Sun newspaper and still no answers. Intimidation on a massive scale of people who could potentially help with the investigation, both concerned Turks and Brits. There are still people wearing rose tinted spectacles an inch thick who say, 'Oh dear, why would the authorities want to hush it up?' One can only guess at the motives.
Grieving mum in battle with Turkish cops | The Sun |Features
extracts from emails received :
[In view of the mysterious accidents that 2 of our Turkish friends have had and that one is fighting to keep his business open, coupled with fear expressed by 2 of our English friends,]
[I have forwarded it to the journalist in Istanbul. He is a good man and is working hard to find out the truth. We are sure that we know the perpetrators and what happened that night of 11 September. Please be careful as there is skulduggery going on out there. Peole who are trying to help have had road accidents and one wonderful Turkish friend is having problems as the authorities are trying to close his business down. We are convinced that ****** is behind this. I am very grateful for your efforts and information you have sent us, but please take care.]

Sad indeed. Heard about this in Side last October. Seemed to be some frightened peple who knew about it but didnt want to talk. Heard a Turkish woman was involved. Hope truth is out soon.

Re: Smyth murder update

Mr Rob Maffin Has misled this father and told so many lies. He has taken 2000 pounds off him as well. Maffin was recommended to Chris Smyth by the vice consul in Antalya. You will find this Maffin usually in The Crazy Fox or any other bar in and around Kemir Side.

Re: Smyth murder update

Anyone and I mean anyone who speaks to Rob Maffin Mr Bullsh***er) will have been misled by him, and he still keeps on doing it year in year out, and I've been acquainted with him for 15 years or so!
