Nearly 24,000 workers were killed in work-related accidents in the past 17 years, according to a labor watchdog, which slammed the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) for not implementing enough measures to prevent these deaths.

“This is your fault. This is the result of a ‘local and national work-related murder regime.’ At least 23,847 workers were killed. Work-related murders, low wages, unemployment, bans on strikes.. What else have you done for workers?” said a tweet by The Health and Safety Labor Watch (İSİG Meclisi), while also using the hashtag “23,847 workers died in AKP years.”
