World’s Oldest Terrorist

Lalihan Akbay, 102, faces a criminal investigation for “making propaganda for a terrorist organization”. She attended a mevlud (a commemorative religious ceremony where the Quran is read) in Tatvan that someone had organized for her son, Mehmet Rauf Akbay, a member of the PKK who died in 1985. The investigation into Ms. Akbay was begun when she allegedly spoke to the media after the ceremony, but her son Tevfik Albay says she cannot understand, speak or hear properly and cannot remember what she has just said. He traveled to Van to speak with the prosecutor, but was rebuffed and told to come back in ten days. (click here)

  1. When I read the title first I thought Turkish army “looking for terrorists” bombed civilian areas and killed dozens of kids and old women and men. I also thought that they arrested an old person and they took him to a Turkish prison island with an air-jet and tortured him or her for “the homeland security.”
    This things used happen in Turkey in the 1980s and 1990s.
    Do they still happen anywhere in the world?

  2. ***Do they still happen anywhere in the world?***

    Yes it still happens.. If you open your eyes well, you will be able to see it especially in Iraq and Afghanistan. And soon in Libya, Egypt and Syria..

    Best Regards,

  3. What does that have anything to do with this? The investigation was started by a prosecutor, not the military.

  4. Emre,
    İf you were addressing me with your question, I ment not the Turkish army but the U.S army and U.S foreign policies.. Wherever- whenever they have interfered, they started massive amount of problems and deaths.. I am personally not an anti- American person, but watching Turkey and its recent investigations and the moderate-İslam project and etc. I find myself difficuld NOT to believe this kind of theories. I also recomend to check the semi-old **echelon project** ..

    Best Regards,

  5. No, I am addressing nicea. This is not a military investigation, as far as I know.

  6. Tired and trivial red herring, Emre. Why bother?
