Mafioso Sedat Peker: Turkish OCG’s conspiracy against Guli is out of greed
The local OCG Şirinler did not know who it was ordered.
Large Turkish mafia representative Sedat Peker has apologized to thief in law Nadir Salifov (Guli) for the members of Şirinler OCG, who collaborated with Namik Dzhaniev.
To recall, the brother of thief in law Rovshan Lenkoransky, who was assassinated in the summer of 2016 – Namik Dzhaniev – was detained along with his proxies during a meeting with representatives of a local criminal group led by Mehmet Sabri Şirin in a shopping center of Istanbul in November 2017.
The Azerbaijani-Turkish coalition was discussing Guli’s elimination. A total of 11 people were arrested. There is an ongoing investigation into the attempted murder. As the Azerbaijani publication Haqqin.az learned, Dzhaniev along with 4 Azerbaijani citizens were released before trial. At the same time, they are prohibited from leaving Turkey and need to report to the Turkish police twice a day until the proceedings are finished.
Living in Turkey, Guli has close links to the local criminal world, hence, according to some sources, he had been offered assistance in eliminating his enemies – Dzhaniev and the staff hitman of the thief in law’s clan, Khadzhi Beylagansky (Talybkhanly), who was detained along with him – serving their time in a local prison. However, it is known that Guli prefers to resolve such issues on his own. According to unconfirmed reports, thief in law Merab Dzhangveladze, who protects Beylagansky, swore to Guli that he did not know about Talybkhanly’s plans.

As for the members of the Turkish group, Peker explained to Guli, the Şirinler OCG had no idea who their target was; they fell for the high ‘order’ price. They were offered $5 million for Guli.
46-year-old Sedat Peker is a well-known Turkish criminal leader. At the same time, he sympathizes with the incumbent Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan; he proved his loyalty during the last year's failed rebellion against the president, helping to suppress the protests.
Peker has several convictions, including for creation of an OCG (he was acquitted of murder), and was forced to hide abroad at different times. In addition, Peker has been accused of having a link to Ergenekon – a clandestine, secularist ultra-nationalist organization in Turkey.
