"Eastern European Maffias rule Fatih & Sultanahmet" Sultanahmet Tip by silvana70

Sultanahmet, Istanbul: 4 reviews and 3 photos

As will be the case with many Arabian and east European countries that are still run by Mafias and corrupt Governments, crime and corruption will spread wherever the people are able to go. Albanian organized crime is very active in Istanbul and Ankara. They are hidden behind veil of legal firms, hotels and restaurants in Istanbul operating a giant turkish prostitution network, cheating and drugging foreign women who would become "merchandise". Have you realized that most Sultanahmet restaurant or pub owners seem as Eastern Europeans and not Turkish? Just be careful.
