Following demands to repay its massive outstanding debts, BRT have, for some time, been negotiating an installment plan with electricity supplier Kib-Tek. This would have enabled them to gradually pay back a substantial accumulation of unpaid electricity bills.
Since discussions have now apparently broken down, the information officer for EL-SEN, Tuluy Kalyoncu posted on Twitter this morning, the following statement:
‘BRT has unpaid bills of TL 19 million 925 thousand. Due to non -payment the electricity to its main building was cut off at 9.25 this morning.’
