Syrian industry body accuses Turkey of 'looting'
- Syria: Wednesday, March 06 - 2013 at 04:53
The Syrian Chamber of Industry has filed a case in a European court against the Turkish government for allegedly sponsoring terrorism and looting factories in the strife-torn country, AFP has reported. The case accused Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan of contributing to the "transfer of factory [machinery from Aleppo province in northern Syria] to Turkey," and of "supporting armed gangs who are committing crimes against the national economy." In January, Syria accused Turkey of plundering factories in Aleppo, once the country's commercial hub, and called on the United Nations to help put a stop to the theft. "Some 1,000 factories in the city of Aleppo have been plundered, and their stolen goods transferred to Turkey with the full knowledge and facilitation of the Turkish government," the Syrian foreign ministry said then in letters sent to the UN.
