SUBJECT: TURKEY: CANDIDATE FOR OSCE COUNTERTERRORISM
WORKSHOP

REF: STATE 115646

1. Following consultations with relevant contacts in the
Turkish National Police (TNP) and in the private sector, we
are pleased to suggest the following candidate for the OSCE
Counterterrorism Workshop to be held in Vienna February
11-12, 2010. TNP contacts may provide a TNP candidate, but
were not certain they could find an appropriate one. In the
interim, we provide the following private sector candidate.

Hasan ALSANCAK, Deputy General Manager for Energy Security,
Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline Company

Mr. Alsancak began his career in June 1992 as Head of the
International Criminal Intelligence Operations Bureau in the
Intelligence Department of the Turkish National Police (TNP).
He subsequently headed the Intelligence, Research and
Development units of the Protection Department of the Turkish
Presidency B, 1998-2000. Between January 2000 and February
2003, he served in two crucial posts -- head of the TNP's
Anti-Organized Crime Operations Bureau and head of the
Financial Crime Investigations Bureau. Prior to assuming his
current position, he worked at the United Nations as Turkey's
security advisor.

Hasan Alsancak completed his undergraduate study in law
enforcement at the Turkish Police Academy, and studied for
his masters degree in criminal justice at the University of
Virgina. In 2000, he participated in the 205th Session of
the FBI National Academy on Counterterrorism and
Investigations. In 2001, he completed a graduate degree in
International Relations at Ankara's Gazi University. His
thesis topic was "The Role of Intelligence Agencies in
Decision Making and Implementation Process of the Foreign
Policy."
