GÜLÜNÇ YALANLAR




http://hurarsiv.hurriyet.com.tr/goster/haber.aspx?id=6074995


Yukarıdaki link’deki yazı, malum konuların dertleşme platformu Feyza Algan- Guzin Abla sütununda yayınlanmıştır. Atıf yapılan deli saçması mektup Susen Erkus’a aittir. Bastan asagi tutarsız yalanlarla doludur. Mektupta neredeyse bir doğru cümle bile yoktur. Iddialar sadece yalan değil aynı zamanda mantık dışı ve çelişkilidir. Cevap vermek bile Susen Erkuş'u hiç hak etmediği şekilde ciddiye almak demektir. Onun seviyesine inip gerçek dışı suçlamalarla uğraşmayacağız.
Robert Smith Avrupa'daki tüm hayvan korumacılar tarafından sadece Istanbul'daki değil Romanya'daki "kısırlaştır- aşılat-yaşat" projelerinin mimarı olarak bilinmektedir. Kendisi Istanbul'un birçok ilçesindeki kısırlaştırma çalışmalarını finanse etmiştir. 1998'den beri Türkiye'deki 20.000 sokak köpeğine ücretsiz tıbbi tedavi yapılmasını sağlamıştır. Belediyeler tarafından Hasdal çöplüğünde açlıktan ölüme terkedilmiş olan 1000 köpeği kurtarıp tedavi ettikten sonra barınağında bakılmalarını finanse etmiştir.
Susen Erkuş kıymeti kendinden menkul, herkesce malum bir "hayvansever"dir ve yaptığı bu gerçekdışı ithamların hesabını adalet önünde verecektir. Bu güne kadar hiçbir savcı ya da polis, her mantıklı insan gibi bu gülünç ve akıl dışı iddiaların hiçbirini ciddiye almaya değer görmemiştir.
Son üç aydır, Feyza Algan'a ait olup SHKD barınağında kalan iki köpeğin tüm masrafları, barınakta kalan, kurtarılmış diğer 250 köpekle birlikte Robert Smith tarafından ödenmektedir. Bu köpekler, sahiplerinin sütünundaki gerçekdışı suçlamalardan sorumlu tutulamayacağından, SHKD onlara yardım etmeye devam edecektir. Feyza Algan onların masraflarına katılmak için hiçbir teşebbüste bulunmadığı gibi, onları ziyaret etmeye bile zahmet etmemiştir.
PREPOSTEROUS LIES

The letter below was published recently in Feyz Algan-Guzin Abla’s column; this journalist is a well known agony aunt who answers readers’ questions about their personal and sexual problems. The letter below was concocted by Susen Erkus. Every single allegation is a lie. There is hardly a word of truth in it. Many of the accusations are not only false, they are illogical and contradictory. Even responding to such nonsense is to take Susen Erkus seriously, which she hardly deserves. We do not intend to sink to her level by trading accusations.

Robert Smith is well known to animal lovers all over Europe as the architect of Neuter & Return projects not only in Istanbul but in many parts of Romania. He has financed Neuter & Return in many districts of Istanbul. He has provided free veterinary care to 20,000 Turkish dogs since 1998. He alone rescued and cared for over 1000 dogs abandoned by municipalities on the Hasdal rubbish dump, when other Turkish animal welfare groups refused to help these starving animals.

Susen Erkus is an infamous and self-proclaimed animal lover who will be held accountable for these paranoid accusations. The reason of course that the public prosecutor and police have taken no action against Robert Smith and SHKD is that they know, as does any reasonable person, that there is no truth in these absurd and sickening allegations.

For the last 3 months Robert Smith has been paying for the accommodation and care of Feyza Algan’s own two dogs, together with 250 other rescued dogs, at the shelter he finances. Since these dogs are not to blame for the libellous accusations in their owner’s column, SHKD will continue to care for them, despite the fact that Feyza Algan pays nothing towards their upkeep and cannot even be bothered to visit them.




Here is the translation of the column:

"I am Warning the Authorities for the Animals that are Smuggled out of the Country

Hurriyet – Kelebek
Wednesday March 7, 2007

‘Guzin Abla,
I am a member of DOSHAYAD and the Animal Protection Committee of the City of Istanbul. Furthermore, in my own association which is under the umbrella of the Istanbul Environment Council, I have undertaken the roles of Secretary and Consultancy for many years.

During these years we fought with Municipalities for the killing, we dealt with people who organized dog and rooster fights. We made serious progress with our friends in these endeavors. However, there is a group we have really been struggling with for the past 10 years, but the officials have never paid attention, they don’t see or hear.

Unfortunately, this group was formed under the false pretences of protecting the animals with the collaboration of two associations and it is headed by a British Citizen who has been living in this country since 1994. I myself as an animal lover was working in the field at that time. In 1996 when I was working as a consultant to the Bakirkoy Mayor, this person told me ‘we should re-home the strays outside of Turkey’. When I said ‘Aren’t there enough dogs outside of Turkey, why would they love our poor worn out dogs?’, he told me that there was a lot of demand from the Netherlands, Switzerland and especially Germany.

I told him that two people should be going with the animals and recording the addresses of their new homes one by one. As I insisted, he asked me ‘what would be my gain in that case’ so I answered ‘You are getting a 10 million dollar fund from the World Health Organization. What else would you expect to gain?’

Since that day I and my friends have continued with this struggle. At that time we were in the minority. Animal lovers who believed him and fought against us (especially targeting myself) were many in number. After this dialogue, they established their associations to undermine me and people who think like me. And we established DOSHAYAD to fight with so-called animal lovers who are after unearned income (rantiye).

Especially between 1996 and 2004 hundreds of thousands of dogs were sent abroad to be killed. In the meantime factories were established in China to process dog skin. This person set up shelters and offices in many countries in Europe, Bulgaria, Middle East, and Far East. The point that is most disappointing about all this is that, before all of this shipping, negative propaganda about Turkish people is spread on the Internet abroad. On the 2nd of April 2003 we caught a branch of these people at the Ataturk Airport. We could only confiscate the last one of the 3 groups of animals which were being sent that day. No official papers were found in the legal investigation.

In the night of the 17th of June 2006 we caught them at the Ataturk Airport again and confiscated the dogs. There was no result even though legal action was taken again. We had support and help from the Chief of Airport Customs Protection. In the first week of the month of September we also blocked the passage of dogs from the Edirne-Kapikule Customs. The Edirne Chief of Police helped us. We owe him gratitude.

We demanded from the gendarme located near the Gokturk Shelter of this association that an investigation be held about the foreign workers who are being employed illegally, dogs which are being transported abroad illegally and the people who prepare illegal papers to transport these dogs abroad. We and the Animal Protection Association in Germany who supports us have repeatedly informed relevant officials that this group operates in affiliated shelters in Antalya, Alanya, Fethiye, and Ayvalik. Unfortunately, no measures were taken. The shipping still goes on.

Please! What we ask from you is to help us make our voice heard by our government to save our poor animal friends from this dreadful end.

DOSHAYAD head of the board – Susen Erkus’

Dear animal-lover, your letter gave me goose bumps. I hope your call has now warned the relevant officials. I am amazed that all of this is known and nothing has been done since years. I hope necessary measures are taken to prevent our dear friends from being products of the industry which will skin them alive. "

Robert Smith ile tanismiyorum ama sokak hayvanlari icin bir gonullu calisan olarak pek cok kere farkli konularda SHKD'den yardim ve destek istedim. Bu deneyimlerimi paylasmak isterim.

Bir sure gonullusu olarak calistigim Sile Grubunda, daha sonra farkli bolgelerdeki calismalarimda SHKD'nin eleman/arac/donanim/kisirlastirma
destegi olmasa idi, kendi kaynaklarimizla ya pek cok aktiviteyi yapamaz ya da kisirlastirdigimiz hayvan sayisi yaridan da az olurdu:

(i) SHKD'ye kisirlastirilmak uzere sadece benim bulundugum calismalarda 50'ye yakin hayvan goturduk. Hepsini kisirlasmis, kupelenmis ve hastaligi var ise tedavisi yapilmis olarak geri aldik.
(ii) Yakalama ekibi ve aracimiz olmadiginda onlardan defalarca bu konuda yardim aldik. Her seferinde de ekiplerinin isinde uzman ve profesyonel calisiyor olduklarini gorduk.
(iii) Kafes/kapan gibi donanim gereksinimlerimizde zaman zaman onlardan odunc istedik. Hic bir zaman yardimi reddetmediler.
(iv) Onlarla her baglantida sunlari gordum: 24 saat calisani olan, yetkililerine her zaman ulasabildiginiz, dokumantasyonu, izlemesi cok duzgun olan bir ekip. Islerinde uzmanlar.

Kendi deneyimlerim ve gorduklerim SHKD icin bana hep sunlari hissettirdi hep: TAKDIR ve TESEKKUR.

Süsen ERKUŞ

Yada hapçı ve uyuşturucu muptelası aynı zamanda kumarbaz...Delilmi istiyorunuz?Bakırköy'de .... kıraathaneye benzer izbe bir mekanı merak edenlere mailden ulaşırız.Eski konslar ve eski ..lar iş bulamayınca kendilerine hedef olarak hayvanları secerler.Ama gecelerin şahidi yoktur.
