Yeah, don't be surprised. The law stipulating that the train damages the perpetrator, only 8 removed years ago.
MEHMET Aycı's book named “Post After Şimendifer”, composed of railway articles, met with readers. The book covers many topics related to the railway life, from the forgotten wagons to the deer, the train crash, from the pigeons of Ankara Gar to the subtleties of the professional life of the machinist.
In the book given by the surname Atatürk, the first Turkish railway contractor and the legendary name of Turkish aviation, Nuri Demirağ is also widely described, it is also told in an ironic language that the law, which envisages the death penalty for those who damaged the railway, was in force until recently.
In the essay entitled “From Haydarpaşa to Haydar Pasha”, Ispartalı Haydar Pasha, who was the head of the architect engineer bases during the period of Yavuz Sultan Selim and Kanuni Sultan Süleyman, who was responsible for keeping the Baghdad-Istanbul caravan route in working condition. With Haydarpaşa Train Station, Hayirpaşa Train Station and Haydarpaşa Urban Renewal Project are being processed in detail.
In the book with content that will open new debates in the Turkish railway literature with its original subjects and style, the removal of the law envisaging the death penalty for those who damage the railway is described as follows:
“Open and see the Official Gazette dated July 14, 2004; You will see the phrase 'Articles 30.5.1283 and 1 of the Regulation on the Procedure of Railways dated 2' and you will wonder what this first article will be.
Those who said this first article are as follows: 'To introduce or to disrupt the movement of the cars, to prevent or disrupt the railways, or to disrupt the movement of the cars, or to disrupt the current route in the presence of the railway station. If he does not take a day off injury due to this movement, he is imprisoned from one year to three years, and if his movement is destroyed, he will be executed and if he is confiscated, he will be punished with a rowing penalty. '
Now, on 30 May 1283, that is, if you say why the termination of this punishment, which entered the Turkish Law literature in 1867, waited until 2004, those who set the statute are the law, the law must be abolished by law, although a punishment called a rowing penalty.
