Erdogan’s daughter, rotten plant watered by absence of state law

The family of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been indulging in corruption and supporting terrorist groups. One member of Erdogan’s family stands out as one of the most corruptive, namely Sumeyye Erdogan.

A published investigative report by Global Research has revealed that Erdogan's daughter is running a 'covert' hospital exclusively to treat wounded Daesh terrorists.

The secret military hospital is located in the southeastern Turkish city of Sanliurfa.

The Global Research further observed that this is not the first time that the London-educated daughter of the Turkish president Erdogan has been linked to Daesh, the terror group.

Sumeyye, according to Global Research, has faced severe criticism on more than one occasion for announcing that she wanted to travel to Mosul to aide the local residents living under Daesh rule.

Sumeyye took advantage of her father’s authority and position to reach decision-making in Ankara and evade the law to collect her large fortune, moreover, her ambition grew outside the borders of Turkey to reach extremist groups in Syria.

Another evidence on her corruption is the recording that Turkish media outlets published in 2013 exposing an agreement between Sumeyye and a businessman who offered her a bribe in exchange for a building license on a non-urban land. The bribe was two villas in Urla, İzmir.

Although the Turkish prosecutor has opened an investigation into the incident, accusing Sumeyye and the businessman of corruption, Erdogan intervened and sacked the interrogators, to be acquitted later, exposing the collapse of the rule of law in Turkey.

The Turkish Intelligence later tried to gain Sumeyye popularity by faking an assassination before she was declared candidate at the Parliamentary elections that were conducted in 2015.

The Turkish authority thought of this plan after Erdogan failed to cleanse the reputation of his daughter with a large media campaign after she was proven involved in corruption cases and accusations of supporting terrorist groups in Syria.

Her kindness and help to extremists made her way into their hearts; Daesh Emir Berlin-born Cumali Mol posted on Twitter in 2015 that he has intentions to marry Erdogan’s daughter, Sumeyye. This was considered by the Turkish opposition as a natural reflection to how she gets along with extremist groups.

While Bilal Erdogan is considered the most active in business, Sumeyye shines in politics as she has been within the rows of the Justice and Development Party since 2010 as head of external affairs. Some members within the party even see her as a powerful successor to her father.

Sumeyye was born in 1985 in Istanbul, she is Erdogan’s youngest daughter. She graduated from Araklı High School in Trabzon. After completing her education in 2005, she received her master's degree in economics from the London School of Economics.

In 2013, she was one of her father’s advisers when he was Prime Minister then, and once he claimed power in August 2014, she resigned from her voluntary work as an adviser to Ahmad Dawood Oglu, the secretary-general of AK Party, after four years of working with him.
