Çerkez Cengiz with respectful admirers.
Cengiz Şıklaroğlu, a.k.a 'Çerkez Cengiz', was elected as an independent
candidate from Sivas in the general election of 7 June 2015 but because
of his criminal record he could not serve in Parliament. Between 2005 and
2016 in Russia Şıklaroğlu was tried for leading a criminal organization,
military spying and attempting to assassinate Chechenistan President
Ramazan Kadirov, but he was aquitted each time.
At the beginning of 2016, after coming to Turkey Şıklaroğlu was tried
and convicted of forcing some businessmen to sign over valuables to him
for aid to the Turkmen population in Syria. A few days ago he entered
Maltepe Prison in Istanbul, escorted by a convoy of 100 vehicles.
I think we got us a convoy...
In front of the prison Şıklaroğlu had this to say: "We were brought up
on the streets. I've paid enough. Ten months later I'll come back even
stronger. I say here that Turkey doesn't need mafia (!), it needs real scientists,
real politicians and real businessmen. My one requests from my friends is
that they get educated and take care of each other."
