The decision to ban Petrol Ofisi and Doğan Holding from participating in public contracts was put into effect upon the completion of the judicial process. According to the decision published in yesterday's Official Gazette, Doğan Holding is officially prohibited from participating in public contracts for 237 days, which began on May 13. Energy and Natural Resources Minister Taner Yıldız said: "We abided by the law. And after an appeal, we were found right again," he said. "We're obligated to impose this penalty."
In 2009, Doğan Holding was banned from participating in public contracts since it did not deliver on its commitments. The appeals process, which began when the ban was lifted as a result of a decision by the Ankara 12th Administrative Court to suspend its execution, came to an end and the ban was re-imposed as demanded by the Energy and Natural Resources Ministry. Yıldız said the decision is not related to a new issue, but is a continuation of the 2009 decision. "In 2009 there was a simulation about the secondary fuel given to the Ambarlı Fuel Oil Power Plant. Our ministry had announced its decision to ban the group from participating in public tenders, and the ban was going to last for one year and four months. However, the company appealed to the court for a stay of execution on the fourth month so we had to suspend its execution. Then the court gave the final decision to lift the ban. We abided by the law and lifted the ban. But then we appealed. The appeal process took four to five years. With the decision of the state council, the judgment was reversed. They requested the revision of the decision, so the decision was revised once more. And as a result, our ministry was recognized as in the right. We have to abide by this decision." Yıldız also emphasized that the decision had nothing to do with the conjuncture that has emerged before the upcoming elections.
