Superior launches probe into chips-addicted Turkish policeman
Osman Şişko TRABZON - Doğan News AgencyPolice in the Black Sea province of Trabzon have launched an internal probe against an officer who mocked work conditions and the nutrition of colleagues in a video that went viral.
“I work 24 hours a day. I draw my strength from …. and …,” Veli Çakı, 49, is heard saying in the video, referring to two famous brands of potato chips. “Let all the police departments eat … and work for 24 hours,” said Çakı, who has served as a policeman for 25 years.
Çakı reacted against the probe on his now popular Facebook page, calling on his superiors to listen to him before launching a probe.
“You must see why this guy eats chips. Then you would see no need for the probe,” he said, complaining of cold and poor lunch boxes served to the staff during long work hours. Some colleagues have lent support to the policemen online.
Çakı is also famous in Trabzon as he was previously recorded acting like a crazed supporter for the province’s legendary Trabzonspor football team.
