Notorious Turkish mob boss Sedat Peker said on Monday that he is in possession of sex tapes featuring prominent figures from Turkey, and of a more sexually explicit nature than videos he posted recently, which has shaken the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (KKTC), a self-proclaimed state in the predominantly Turkish side of Cyprus, where a number of politicians were disgraced due to Peker’s leaks.
From his backup Twitter account @delicavus_nth, Peker posted a sex tape of KKTC Prime Minister Ersan Saner on Oct. 20, prompting withdrawal from his candidacy for leadership of his National Unity Party (UBP).
Peker claims to have gotten ahold of the tapes from another mob boss, Halil Falyalı, who is said to have shady relations with Turkish authorities and is allegedly blackmailing Turkish Cypriot politicians with sex tapes recorded at his resorts.
“They didn’t just tape the [KKTC] prime minister and officials from other political parties. They also have the tapes of high-ranking bureaucrats to make them do their bidding. There are some from among people who travel there from Turkey; I promise if you see their videos, it might damage your faith in our holy religion. May God curse them. I grew up in a poor neighborhood. Of course, I have seen obscene films here and there. I swear I never saw scenes like these in those movies,” Peker tweeted.
Peker said he cannot post these videos from his handle, and to reassure that he is not bluffing, he is willing to send the videos to an independent journalist to verify.
Peker accused Turkish politicians without explicitly naming them of being hypocrites for marginalizing LGBT people and of engaging in what he implied were same-sex relations, captured on tape.
According to the 2021 Rainbow Europe Map published by the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA)-Europe, Turkey was ranked 48th among 49 countries as regards the human rights of LGBT people.
Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu praised Turkey’s actions against the LGBT community last week, saying the LGBT community had corrupted the society and that as a Muslim state they would not allow such perversity.
Peker also said he would expose a criminal network spanning the KKTC, Turkey, North Macedonia and Belarus in the coming days, adding that that this network took over all illegal gambling and transferring of drug money.
Peker, the head of one of Turkey’s most powerful mafia groups who was once a staunch supporter of Erdoğan, has since early May been setting the country’s political agenda through shocking revelations he has been making on social media about state-mafia relations, drug trafficking and murders implicating state officials.
