ISTANBUL, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Turkcell (NYSE: TKC, ISE: TCELL), the
leading communications and technology company in Turkey, commented briefly
today on the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum,
by which the Supreme Court limited the jurisdictional reach of U.S. courts
under the Alien Tort Statute.Ultimately the U.S. District Court for the
District of Columbia will resolve how the Kiobel decision impacts the case,
which Turkcell anticipates may be addressed in the coming weeks. Any comment
on the impact of the decision on the case is inappropriate before action by
the U.S. district court, and Turkcell will withhold further comment at this
time.

Turkcell already provided the U.S. district court with a detailed description
of MTN's extensive business dealings in the United States supporting personal
jurisdiction.
