The Turkish government rejected calls to investigate mines in the eastern region of Soma just just weeks before the incident which killed over 200 miners, according to a Turkish newspaper.
Turkey's main opposition, the Republican People’s Party, submitted a motion to Parliament last year to investigate work-related accidents at coal mines in Soma, only for the proposal to be rejected three weeks ago, said Hurriyet Daily News.
An explosion at a mine in Soma is feared to have trapped nearly 800 miners, in what Turkey's prime minister has said is probably the country's worst mining disaster.
