Mafia boss Alaattin Cakici blowed his anger to Greece after his request for a visa was rejected

Alaattin Cakici, a leading figure of the Turkish mafia, launched an attack on Greece on social media after the Greek authorities rejected his request for a visa to travel to the country.

Notorious mafia boss said: "Greece has not forgotten its defeat by the Ottoman Empire even after centuries. If the inhabitants of Istanbul blow, there will be an earthquake with an intensity of 15 on the Richter scale in Athens."

Cakici, who was imprisoned with charges of founding a criminal organization, inciting attacks and complicity in dozens of murders including his own wife, was released in 2020 after a law freed thousands of prisoners to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the country's prisons.

In one incident, he had to flee to Greek islands in a boat while running abroad to escape a prison sentence. He has been arrested several times in Europe with fake special passports that required no visa.

But in his message, he opted to boast about his foreign travels:

“I am a Turkish citizen who has traveled the world 2.5 times. I got visas from all over the world without any hassle. I have lived in the US for 3.5 years, I have lived in Canada for 6 months, I have lived in South Africa for about 1 year, I have been to Singapore, Malaysia, Bhutan, Myanmar, Nepal, Tibet, Taiwan 11-12 times.”

In his threatening message, Cakici also gave a lesson to Greece and the US on history and international relations, analyzing the dispute between Turkey and Greece over Greek islands:

“The US has armed all the islands from Crete to Alexandroupoli. Americans claim to be our nation's greatest ally since 1948, excluding England. The US president, politicians and military bureaucrats know this nation well. Let them not forget that we are members of a unique nation.”
