Dear Sirs :
I am an argentinean cartoonist, author of 29 humor books , awarded by Aydin Dogan Vakfi International Cartoon Contest 2001 , ocation where I went to
With grief , sorrow and surprise I see he is now victim of a big misunderstanding that he doesn´t deserve at all. He is one of the most talented artists I´ve ever seen , a master of synthesis and a joy to the readers of your newspaper.
Mr Tan Oral is more than a legend in Turkish humor. He is an ambassador of Turkish culture and a worldwide known and respected master of drawing a smile in people´s faces drawing concise, up- to- the -point lines .
I urge you to reconsider your desition and please employ again Mr Tan Oral for the sake of your prestigious newspaper, which cannot afford such an enormous loss, specially considering it coincides the 50th anniversary of Mr Oral as a prestigious Turkish cartoonist .
The international communitity of humor is in a grief with this cruel and absurd news,

He is an excellent person and a respected cartoonist.
This seems to be a joke, but unfortunatelly, it is not.
Dear Tan : I send you here all my solidarity, wishing justice be made,
and that you get your job back. After 50 years of work,
you deserve honour and respect, not this.
