son-in-law of Ruhiye Çetik who died at the age of 88 nine years ago,
claiming that Süsler has been collecting the dead woman's retirment salary
all this time.
In a statement to the Bakırköy Public Prosecutor, which has begun an
inquiry into the matter based on a tip, Süsler said that 'When my mother

money (sic 'ölüm parası') - I can't remember the amount - from my
