Flotilla hero, the Gaddafi Prize and the Money
As the bodies pile up in Libya, flotilla hero and Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is coming under pressure to return an honour bestowed on him last November, the Al-Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights. Other recipients include former South African President Nelson Mandela and Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez - Turkish leader keeps his Gaddafi Prize for Human Rights
The award also includes $50,000 and it's no surprise that Erdogan is hanging on to that along with the stash he has in several Swiss bank accounts according to WikiLeaks.
And, as far as I know, the bloke who wrote all those fanciful puff pieces about the so called peaceniks on the Erdogan financed fake flotilla is hanging on to his Walkley.
