MOSCOW, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Consulate-General in Antalya has directed an inquiry to the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism due to reports saying three Russian tourists died and others were hospitalized after drinking poisoned alcohol at Orient Palace and Jacaranda Hotels.
“Until now we haven’t received any answer. The above-mentioned hotels have presented documents proving that the sanitary and epidemiological situation corresponds to the established standards,” the Consulate-General reported.
Russian diplomats in Antalya confirmed that two hotels had reported about new poisoning cases. “Orient Palace Hotel [Belek] reports 23 cases while Jacaranda Hotel [Alanya] reports 24 cases. All tourists have been provided medical assistance. Six people have been hospitalized and discharged on the same day,” diplomats said.
