In order to prove his claim, Tayyar has published a copy of a piece of correspondence written by the National Police Department in 1946 in response to Nesin’s detention by the police in the same year. The note was sent to then National Police Chief Ahmet Demir.
The note reads: “Among the suspects there is Aziz Nesin, a known leftist. This person was writing articles against the government in his daily. It is also understood that he is a man with the National Security Service.”
Tayyar also used the statements of a former MİT official, Neşet Güriş, made to Tempo magazine in 2007, to prove Nesin’s relationship with MİT. Güriş, who died at the age of 101 last year, told the magazine: “Aziz Nesin was a person who was known as a communist. He was working for them to a certain extent. He was offended by Turkey; he faced some injustices when he was a lieutenant. He became a leftist. There was something unknown about him: He was working for the National Security Service.”
