Statement on the re-burial of the remains of Mehmet Remzi Bey, our first Consul General to South Africa

Pretorya Büyükelçiliği 18.01.2022

The remains of late Mehmet Remzi Bey, our first Consul General in Johannesburg, has been re-buried in its original resting place in Johannesburg today.

On 21 November 2011 the remains of Mehmet Remzi Bey had been transferred by FETO terrorist organization to its facility in Midrand through deceit and falsified documents.

The remains of the deceased Mehmet Remzi Bey has been returned to its original resting place as a result of our determined legal struggle for years.

We thank the family of the deceased who was with us throughout the legal struggle, their lawyer who followed the legal process carefully, and the authorities of the Republic of South Africa who ensured the supremacy of the rule of the law.
