The wikileaks release also demonstrates the family’s control of press and social media

Note 1: I add clarifying passages from RT France, below…
Note 2: This is confirmation of some earlier news. See “The Erdogan Family Business” here.

The Turkish president’s son-in-law, who is also energy minister, appears to be part owner in a company that supplies oil to the jihadist organization.

More than 57,000 personal emails from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s son-in-law, Berat Albayrak, who happens to be Minister of Energy of the country, Berat Albayrak, have been released by WikiLeaks.

The emails are from the period 2000-2016 and they reveal that Albayrak has a relationship with the company Powertrans, which is tied to the supplying ISIS oil. [an explanatory word from the French report, linked below: In this case, Powertrans, which has been exempted from the embargo imposed on all other oil companies on imports and exports of oil in Turkey, particularly from areas under Daesh control.] The Erdogan son-in-law is seen participating in company decisions, such as approval for staff salaries and hiring.

Albayrak communicates with the country’s elite, emphasizing the influence over the political scene in Turkey and seems to be trying to control the MSM and the social media, promoting the positions of the ruling Party of Justice and Development.

Controversial emails are estimated to have come from the Turkish team Redhack hackers, which in claimed that it had the emails of Albayrak and in September threatened to publish them if the government continued to hold persons on the left. The emails “came to the fore,” but when the Turkish government’s repression of the media came on, they disappeared from the internet.

From RT France: The pirated emails cover a period going from April 2000 to September 23, the attempted coup of July 15 being included.

The correspondance equally shows — according to Wikileaks, which dumped the whole lot — Berat Albayrak’s concern to control the social networks, notably after the mass protests of 2013 over the Gezi Park and the Taksim Square, that involved hundreds of thousands of demonstrators.
