“OTHER PATIENTS WHO DO NOT BENEFIT FROM THE LAW ALSO RETIRE WITH DISABILITY”

Education and Community Volunteer Semiramis Karaaslan stated that some of the silicosis patients were retired due to disability, but some only received disability pension, and that other patients should also benefit from the law.

Karaaslan, who takes care of the needs of silicosis patients voluntarily, said, “Our children, who were working in this job before with the law enacted by our state, retired due to disability, but unfortunately some of them did not benefit from this law and they only earn their living on disability pension. There were even those who did not receive any salary and died. The lives of these young people are already difficult. We ask the authorities to give one more right to those who do not benefit from the law.

Our beloved son Mehmet Emin İslamoğlu, who has silicosis, went to treatment in Ankara. Unfortunately, I was devastated by the sad news of our loss. Mehmet Emin was one of those who embraced death in the workplaces where they worked unsupervised, unlicensed and uninsured. Rest in peace. I was so burned; I share the pain of his grieving family, and I wish patience. “The jeans have turned white, their life has become dark,” he said. (DHA)
