NEW METHODS IN HUMAN TRAFFICKING TO TURKEY

Dozens of asylum seekers were crossing our border in the days when the minister said: “even birds cannot fly without permission from our borders.” It was also revealed that the minister did not tell the truth in those days, with asylum seekers who died in Lake Van. Currently, marijuana, heroin, even cocaine are not as expensive as they used to be. Because there are so many drugs, stimulants, that those who want to take it are easily accessible. Now it’s human trafficking. Because it has become this smuggling that has the least risk and earns the most.

No doubt the security forces are fighting the drug. Only 15 percent of drugs sent to Western countries using the Balkan route through Turkey are caught in our country. When we look at the proportion of those caught in European countries, Turkey is ahead in this area. However, this is also not enough. And you have to ask, Why are these bosses absent when the drugs expressed in tons are caught?

DEGASSING OPERATION

Smuggling also changes the way-method. Human trafficking is the most profitable today. Those who come to our country from Asian and African countries are called “asylum seekers”. Although some say” Refugee”, this is not the right concept.

Human traffickers have plenty of customers. More recently, about 300 thousand Afghans and Yemenis came to our country. Never lose sight of Somalis. Ankara’s Red Crescent has become a new place for Somalis. Some of those who come are not comfortable. He brings people from his countries, from other countries to Turkey either by illegal means or by new methods.

CAMPS IN THREE PROVINCES

Syrians were placed in the same place en masse in Ankara. When we settled in the districts of Ankara such as Önder and Ulubey, our artisans there finished their work. A tradesman I spoke to said: “after exactly 25 years and 8 months and 13 days, I had to close my business there. Because, when all sides became Syrians, our citizen did not come,” he says, pointing to the problem caused by the placement of Syrians in the same districts.

There have been days of clashes with Syrians in Ankara. The Interior Ministry sent Syrians registered in other provinces to the provinces where they were registered to receive the citizen’s gas. It was also decided to weigh in on the inspections. Those captured from Afghanistan are also placed in camps located in Erzurum, Van, Iğdır. They are considered asylum seekers because they have fled the war in their country and are given an “international protection identity”. Afghans can claim asylum.

THEY COME TO TURKEY LIKE STUDENTS

My residence with a high-ranking official of the General Directorate of security. “Recently, the events of human trafficking have also changed,” he says, describing the tactics of those who come to our country from African countries where we apply visas:

Somali citizens who are not more than 25 years old are pre-enrolled in state or foundation universities in our country by somehow fitting their diplomas and equivalences in their country and applying to our Embassy in groups. Visa requests are sent to the foreigners Visa Office of the General Directorate of migration administration. Here, the tourism agency that makes the organization comes into play. As a result of the procedures of the Ministry of Interior and the Council of Higher Education (YÖK), a visa is obtained. In this way, these people are allowed to come to Turkey. 1 – visa money, 2 – pre – registration money, 3 – plane ticket money, 4 – one-year Turkish language course Money, 5-one-year dormitory money, not less than 10 thousand dollars are taken as a package from those who receive a student visa. Flow consented, giver consented…

.
THEY TAKE THE SESSION AS FOLLOWS

These students are usually enrolled in universities in small cities. These students must be through a one-year Turkish preparatory language course TÖMER. However, TÖMER is only in Ankara. They register at Tömler and receive a one-year student session certificate from the Ankara migration administration. Most of them don’t go to the course.

Not only from Tömer, but also from Turkish language courses registered with or not registered with the Ministry of Education. In this way, he gets a session in Ankara. 80 percent of those who enroll never attend the course and continue to stay in Turkey.

.
TURKEY FOOTBALL PLAYER TRANSFER

Another method is the transfer of players. 2 and 3. league teams are applied from African countries that meet the age requirement, even though they are not football players are brought as if they were football players. Most of them are not footballers, and their arrival is ensured by issuing licenses from their country for money. The number of ivory being brought from countries such as Nigeria, Ghana and Guinea is remarkable.

.
TURKEY HEALTH TOURISM

‘Health tourism’ under the name of Africa, especially these applications are made from different countries. He suggests that their treatment is possible in Turkey, they agree with medical centers and private hospitals by mutual invitation method to apply to our embassies and obtain a visa. Most of them are people who do not have serious diseases who want to completely come to Turkey and pass from here to Europe.

As you take precautions, they go one step further. It’s not enough just to take precautions at the border. As those who organize smuggling find and implement new ways and methods, they manage to get on the radar trend of the Turkish government, where new obstacle dynamics come in effect.

On recent, applicants from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh have also got themselves marked on the close watch list.
