CHP Deputy Chairman Umut Oran has taken the Tuluhan
Tekelioğlu’s news story for Cumhuriyet Newspaper, 'The
secret hospitals of the Rabita,’ to the Parliament's agenda.
According to this story, jihadists are being treated in
hostel-like structures belonging to an Islamic foundation,
Rabiṭat al-'Alam al-Islami, in the Reyhanlı district of
Hatay province on the Turkey-Syria border.
The Muslim World League or Rabita al-Alam al-Islamiý
(Rabita) is a Saudi centred group of Islamic
non-governmental organizations. According to research by the
famous Turkish investigative journalist Uğur Mumcu, who was
assassinated in 1993 by a bomb planted in his car, Rabita is
a Saudi-based religious sect that aims to bring Turkey and
other Muslim countries under Saudi influence through
satellite foundations, institutions and associations.
The questions asked to the Minister of the Interior, Muammer
Güler, in the resolution are as follows:
The secret hospitals of the Rabıta
- Who are Saudis and Syrians working in these hospitals,
where the entrance of Turkish citizens is banned and which
have been operating for nine months?
- “Yörük Hostel 03264130054 and 05069951229” is written on
the door of one of these hospitals. Who has stayed in this
hostel up until today? Were the necessary notifications
about the credentials of overnight visitors made to the
police station? If not, what kind of action will you take
against the negligent police in charge and the hostel staff?
- Who are the security guards working in these
hostel/hospitals'? What is the date and number of their
licences? Do they perform their duties while armed?
- It is being stated that the hospitals, which have been
made to look like hostels, are being funded by the Rabita
al-Alam al-Islamiý (The Muslim World League, MWL), a Saudi
Arabia-based non-governmental organization. The
organization, located in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, was founded by
King Saud on 19 May 1962. Did this institution receive
permission from the Ministry of the Interior or the
Governor's office? How long have they been operating in
Turkey? What kind of activities are done by this Saudi-based
institution and in which cities?
- From where did this institution, as one of the branches of
the Rabita organization, receive permission to provide
religious courses under the name of “personal development
and vocational training centers?” Do the staff of this
association have work permits?
- "Welcome to 3rd Rehabilitation Center in the Turkish
Republic” is written on a flier in the hostel. According to
this, how many centers operate in Turkey? Where are the
other two centers?
