In the expert delegation report dated 08/10/2018, taken in the investigation file initiated after the 'accident', no flaws were attributed to the TCDD officials who had the primary responsibility in the incident with purely subjective evaluation, only the four personnel working in the lower ranks of TCDD in the occurrence of the incident. stated to be; In the investigation file, based on the expert report, a decision of non-prosecution was made about other TCDD officials.
The expert panel was not formed by the prosecution office on the basis of objective and scientific criteria; quickly identified names, a few hours after the event, while the rescue work continued to the scene by helicopter experts. Although the experts to be employed should be included in the current list of the year established by the Expert Regional Boards, experts other than Engin Bıçakçı and Bedir Duman are not included in the list of experts accepted for 2018 year.
He is an electrical engineer who is a member of the expert committee selected by the prosecution. Dr. Bekir Sıddık Binboğa Yarman is also a member of the board of Savronik Sistem A.Ş. In this case, he was a party to the incident, and he had to withdraw from the office and misused his duties and issued a biased report.
He is a civil engineer. Dr. Mustafa Karaşahin took part in the da Independent Science Committee ulan, which was created in order to investigate the disaster and indirectly blamed the machinists for missing the responsibility of the TCDD administration in the accident that was accelerated in 22 July 2004. After that date, he served as Advisor to the Minister of Transport between the years 2005-2012, and as a High Speed Train Consultant during the years 2009-2013. Since 2013, he is a member of the Accident Research and Investigation Board within the Ministry of Transport.

All of the titles such as research fields, publications, projects, scientific activities on the website of Namık Kemal University, where civil engineer Engin Bıçakçı, who is on the expert committee, is on the academic staff, are empty. In the expert report, the title of Engin Bıçakçı was named as' Research. In the face of a case, which is written in the form of such an important social impact, there is no answer to the reason why Engin Bıçakçı was included in the expert committee, while scientists with higher academic career could be assigned this task.
Again, there is no answer to the concrete criteria of civil engineer Hakan Bozbulut and freelance mechanical engineer Bedri Duman, who are not included in the expert committee but whose work and / or academic career cannot be determined.
In this case, “Prof.Dr.” in the expert committee the person carrying the title of consultancy in the renovation of the railway lines, 'Prof.Dr.' Another person carrying the title is the chairman of the group companies in which the company conducts the signaling works of the line, and there is no concrete data regarding the concrete criteria of the other delegation members, etc. When taken together, it is clear that these people are not impartial, they have made an effort and tried to take the TCDD officials who have the primary responsibility in the incident away from responsibility.
At the same time, the relevant experts who have engineering profession act in violation of TMMOB Law, TMMOB Master Regulation and TMMOB Disciplinary Regulation No. 6235 in performing these duties and they should be banned from the profession by opening necessary disciplinary investigations. For these reasons, today, as part of our search for justice, we complain to the relevant experts, the relevant professional chambers affiliated to TMMOB.
In the next period, we will continue our struggle to ensure that all those responsible for Çorlu Train Massacre are accountable in public conscience and before the judiciary. ”
