Access to news about the death of a patient who was found to be infected with HIV from the blood given by the Red Crescent is now blocked. Media will not be able to report the suspicious infection from the blood the government’s scandal-ridden relief organization provides.
Ahmet Emin Bilgin, a 52-year-old kidney patient living in Istanbul, allegedly died in 2011 due to HIV infection from blood given during a kidney transplant. Kızılay, the Turkish governmental health and relief agency Red Crescent, announced that access to the news was blocked.
Bilgin received his mother’s kidney transplant at Medical Park Göztepe Hospital in 2011. Bilgin, who died three days after being hospitalized, was found to be infected with HIV from the blood given by Kızılay. The court, which ordered the family to be compensated a total of 770,000 TL by the hospital and the Red Crescent, stated that the Red Crescent was “completely at fault.”
Kızılay published a statement on the subject via Twitter and announced that access to the published news was blocked. “After the February 6 Kahramanmaraş-Pazarcık earthquakes, it is clear that the Turkish Red Crescent has no other purpose than to serve the deliberate attrition efforts targeting it,” the Red Crescent said in its statement.
