bne IntelliNews – ISTANBUL BLOG: Borsa Istanbul stripped naked by gangster ‘influencer’ The Botox
Sedat “The Botox” Peker, the fugitive former mafia boss in Turkey who became a YouTuber and Twitter influencer as he spilled the beans on the Erdogan administration, has uncovered a filthy corruption goldmine in Borsa Istanbul. Sad to report, however, that Botox is a bit of a medical case. He has a bad case of narcissism – and narcissism is the twin sister of an inferiority complex.

After relishing the taste of dominating Turkey’s agenda with his v-logging performance as a YouTuber relying on drip reveals, Botox now gets really angry when his reveals don’t generate much buzz.
However, with his latest news sensation (yes, The Botox can be described as the best journalist covering Turkey at the moment), devoted to Borsa Istanbul – more aptly called “Casino Istanbul” – he has quenched a thirst for click -o-mania with some emphasis on the power of individual investors (called in Turkish “kucuk yatirimci”, or “KY”, meaning “small investor”) in the country’s largest betting arena.
At the end of July, there was were 2.5 mins local investors registered to invest in Borsa Istanbul. Most of the registrations are fake accounts. Accounts, for example, can be opened in the names of family members and so on for a range of reasons, such as qualifying for more shares in initial public offerings (IPOs). Additionally, organized gangs keep many accounts under their control.
In the end, we can say here are about a million asset individual investors. But they are really loud. These investors are extremely active on social networks and belong to the middle class, the main target of the media. They are the Turkish version of the character who shouts: “I am a taxpayer! among cops in the United States.
It was May 2021 when The Botox became Turkey’s most popular broadcaster with its v-logging exploits sent online from a bolthole in Dubai. But his airtime was cut after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan took out his YouTube post with a precision strike by once again becoming blood brothers with UAE Sheikh Muhammed bin Zayed, known as MbZ’s name.
Yet MbZ stopped short of handing Botox to Erdogan, simply banning him from YouTube instead. So The Botox then tried out as a Twitter influencer. Not so fast, said MbZ, who responded by banning him from tweeting about Erdogan’s regime.
Not to be entirely thwarted, Botox turned to fake Twitter accounts created by his gang members. He is able to retweet via his own account, @sedat_peker.
Botox currently uses @delicavus_nth, or a standby account @uzuncavus_, for its news bursts. @FreudunTalebesi (“Freud’s Student”) is used for sex expose videos and underlying cases (Twitter sometimes suspends this account when The Botox shares sex videos involving Justice Party officials and Development (AKP) in power in Turkey).
Peker also has a press officer (@emreolurr) and talks to journalist Erk Acarer (@eacarer) (Acarer is a real journalist. He must be because gangs from the Erdogan regime broke his nose in the garden from his home in Germany after writing a few stories based on the mobster’s revelations. Since that time, Botox has applied positive discrimination to Acarer compared to other journalists).
So we can say that this guy is well organized. This isn’t much of a surprise given that his primary profession has been organized crime, but at first he may not have expected to add such a range of attributes to his resume. Youtube, social media influencer, legal affairs (trials and prison sentences) and psychiatry (Peker has undoubtedly been a star patient in psychiatry since he was a teenager), to start with.
Prior to its foray into Borsa Istanbul affairs, The Botox provided information on the link between the once Western-led clandestine anti-communist Gladio operation, known in Turkey as the “counter-guerrilla”, with Erdogan in relationship to the close associate of the Turkish leader Hasan Yesildag. Foreign audiences don’t hear about Gladio stories in Turkey because they are censored.
The Turks don’t care too much about Gladio’s business either, and Botox seems to fall into some sort of despondency when his tales fail the popularity test. It was last weekend, however, when her mood finally improved. Our curious narrator found himself once again shaking Turkey’s foundations with his Borsa Istanbul story.
On August 29, the opposition parties deposit certain criminal complaints. They demanded action against the convicted crime boss’ allegations of a stock market corruption ring. So once again we are left with The Botox as the most popular figure performing on the political scene in Turkey and the opposition parties, who maintained a studied composure through various other songs of our canary , now paying homage to Botox to capitalize on its popularity.
Botox being an ex(?)-Gladio device, this situation describes Turkey quite well. “Is Turkey a Gladio State? is the rhetorical question here. We had a story that delved deeper into this question.
Borsa Istanbul’s story of Botox is, on the other hand, an ultra-sexy story that escapes the field of censorship (it is not about post-colonialism). Foreign media – with the exception of the British establishment media since, politics being what they are, they refrain from publishing negative stories about Erdogan’s regime – could easily exploit this story. After all, this is the “global fight against fraud”.
It’s a story of machinations, family affairs, sex, unfortunately no drugs so far, but cash, secret lovers, guns, bread knives (big) and so on.
According to the revelations – based on official documents, videos and witnesses among others – courtesy of The Botox, Ali Fuat Taskesenlioglu, former head of Turkey’s capital markets council, SPK, received $180 million bribes via a criminal. circle that includes his sisters (including an AKP deputy), a brother-in-law, Erdogan’s palace assistant Serkan Taranoglu, a journalist, a news site and a few officials.
The Botox even gave the address of the apartments where Taskesenlioglu allegedly kept the money. Since the allegations broke, some of them have reportedly been taken down, but more apartments are now pictured with four “big” safes, according to our mafia friend.
One might wonder how Botox could access such information. Well, given the corrupt state of Turkey, nobody in their right mind in the country who has a legal problem goes to a courthouse or to the media, because the notion of fair and objective treatment from those institutions has become laughable. No, they’re going for Botox.
Those who wish to exercise their eyebrows can catch up with any number of circulating stories. For example, there is the “businessman” who bribes a civil servant who is then removed from his post before he can make the requested trip. The businessman asks for reimbursement, but the official says no. At the end, the businessman threatens to tell the story with Botox. The official reimburses the money.
Gangsters jostling within the regime for power are also leaking Botox information. On August 27, for example, Peker wrote that pop singer Gulsen, detained after a controversial quip about religious schools made on stage in April, would be released on August 29 in another attempt to manipulate the country’s agenda.

On August 29, Gulsen was indeed released, under house arrest. Botox claimed she was arrested in the first place to create a big stir to distract from her Borsa Istanbul revelations.
Let’s end this article with some official statements. The pit is fun and bottomless.
On August 28, the SPK declared that she would file a criminal complaint against Mine Tozlu Sineren, president of Marka Yatirim Holding (MARKA), since she had claimed that Taskesenlioglu’s entourage had asked her for bribes to approve her request for a capital increase by rights issue.
August 28, Qua Granite (QUAGR) said that the Qua Hotel, which was mentioned in Taskesenlioglu’s story, is not owned by Qua Granite but by another company, in which Qua Granite chairman Ali Ercan has a 51% stake.
Also on August 28, Gezinomi (GZNMI), the company in which Ali Ercan would have have the bet, said that any statements on social media were unrelated to its operations and that it is continuing operations based on its IPO reports.
August 29, Avod Kurutulmus Gida (AVOD) said that the SPK conditionally approved its application in February to increase its paid-up capital by 180 million Turkish liras (TRY) ($10 million).
Rights issues are a perfect way to suck the pacifier that produces KY money.
Finally, note that this story only concerns small companies listed on the Borsa Istanbul because The Botox has gotten its hands on some juicy documents. But everyone knows that the real story in Turkey revolves around so-called blue chips, renowned holding companies owned by flamboyant families and the sovereign wealth fund (TWF/ TVF).
Keep those fingers crossed. Perhaps we will learn details of how the main indices of Casino Istanbul are continually breaking records based on the lira via the price movements of just a few stocks. That’s right, ask your news providers for true stories about the gamer pod that is Borsa Istanbul, not manipulative news spread by gangsters.
