Cicek, who did not want to disclose the names of these bosses, said that they should not ask for appointment, rather they should pay their debt. Cicek said that billions of dollars were looted through these banks and that the aim of the motion, which was also deemed as “the Pincer Movement against Looters,” was to pave the way for collecting debts to the state, and hence, to the public.
Cicek said, “A significant portion of the properties of those, who caused this swamp, are not registered in their names. In other words, they benefit from the income of these properties but companies or other possessions are recorded as if these people did not own them. That is, the liability does not belong to them.”
On criticisms regarding the motion, Cicek said, “Of course we will take constructive comments into account. However what I see is that most of those criticizing the motion had not said a word when these banks were being looted. Some people are trying to save themselves fearing that the motion may affect them in the future.” Cicek said that the government was determined to pass the motion from Parliament.
