I am one of Anatolia’s sons, born in Dikilitaş, the highlands of a remote mountain village in the Taurus Mountains south of Konya. My mother tells me that it was in the afternoon, the time when the herd of goats is ushered down to the highland settlement.
My entire life thus far has been charted by the Anatolian values embedded in my personality by the early years of life we lived in that village, and by the sense of responsibility I willfully shouldered in order to ease my mother’s life upon the early death of my father.
I was lucky to be able to study after the primary school. Even though my original aim had been to become a primary school teacher, unexpected twists and turns in my life altered my path, sending me to law school and leading me to become a lawyer instead. The combination of the Anatolian values and the family responsibilities I took on at tender age have guided me in my journey to become an international lawyer; a dedicated seeker of justice and a true patriot desperate to contribute to my country’s advancement.
I am also trying to promote the very humanistic cultural values inherent in this land and its people, and to instill those values and principles into the greater world.
I am proud to have personally advanced from a state of abject poverty to that of international lawyer and feel indebted to my society that allowed me to strive to the best of my abilities which have nurtured me not only with free of charge books and a good education, but also accommodations, clothing, and subsistence.
My immediate purpose is directed towards both clearly identifying and enunciating the problems facing Turkey and their root causes. This effort has led to the recent publication of my latest book, Turkey’s Middle Democracy Problems. In this work I uncover the problems facing Turkey in terms of its judicial system, and such principles as accountability and fair representation. This book also introduces my proposals for their solution.
Turkey will be able to avert the problems that middle income and middle democracy countries by ensuring the rule of law in public sector institutions.
This can easily be achieved by reversing those provisions that entrust the prosecution of public officials’ offences to the conclusive decisions made by their own organizations or superiors. The first and requisite step in solving Turkey’s problems lies in ensuring the accountability of the members of the judiciary without compromising that institution’s independence and impartiality. A truly accountable judiciary alone can secure Turkey’s rightful place among the world’s most developed countries simply by ensuring the accountability of public sector institutions.
I view this website as a means of sharing my views with the public in hopes that I can find, meet, and embrace others who also share this sacred and glorious objective.
