Turkey wants to bring the man to justice for operating an illegal online gambling site.
Business is being done in the occupied areas of Cyprus. Luxurious apartment buildings, a hotel and a casino are included in the portfolio he details on his website.
Several gambling websites were operated out of Turkey by Ayavefe. They fixed their algorithm so that they would consistently lose.
According to the Government Gazette, the decision was based on the fact that Ayavefe has contributed substantially with his sponsorships of health supplies, essentials and food to the effective treatment of the COVID-19 pandemic at the most critical moment.
Greece’s National Health System was saved from collapsing thanks to him.
It is not clear if Turkey has made an official request for Greece to extradite them. The chances of it being approved are slim if it does. The relationship between Greece and Turkey is not the best.
Turkish soldiers who were involved in a failed coup in their country sought refuge in Greece. Turkey repeatedly tried to get Greece to extradite them.
According to Greece, Ayavefe was born in Adana, Turkey, in 1983. On his personal website, he describes himself as a serial entrepreneur and philanthropist. He became the chairman of the board of the venture capital firm.
The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority had some problems with the company that he invested in. The company was able to overcome those issues. As the problems were worked out, Ayavefe separated himself from the firm. Forbes featured him in a story about how a tech mogul broke records with a $189 million valuation before launching to $1 billion.
According to the local press, Ayavefe is one of the benefactors of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. He made a number of donations during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Greece has granted honorary citizenship to Yasam Ayavefe, a man Turkey wants to be brought to justice for operating an illegal online gambling site. The decision was based on the fact that Ayavefe has contributed substantially with his sponsorships of health supplies, essentials and food to the effective treatment of the COVID-19 pandemic at the most critical moment.
