‘THIS SAFARI WAS ILLEGAL’

Süleyman Kaya, the Chairman of TÜRSAB West Mediterranean Regional Executive Board, maintained that the overturned jeep was not registered in any agency and did not have a work permit. Kaya claimed the jeep was not sent to the inspections carried out by Fethiye Council of Sports Tourism last week either and the safari was organized illegally by this jeep. Süleyman Kaya explained that there were 9 people in the jeep during the accident and said, “When the jeep crashed, 2 British tourists lost their lives. Another English tourist is currently having treatment in the hospital and the life-threatening situation continues. As a result of our inspections after the accident, we found out that the jeep was not registered in an agency and did have no work permit. Fethiye District Governancy, Tourism Information Directorate, Gendarmerie Command and TÜRSAB carry on inspections from the beginning of the season regularly. However, this jeep was overlooked.” Kaya also explained that the accident happened on the route approved by Fethiye Council of Sports Tourism.
