Although opposition to the fine is possible by filing a court case at the Administrative Court within (30) days from the incident through a Lawyer, in cases where the pollution is observed/established by the Authority themselves, there is very little chance of success in an appeal; this is to say even if a court case concludes in our favour it will be settled in Turkish Liras without any interest and to collect the fine amount another court case must be filed againts the Authority, hence not advisable to pursue considering it will take 1-2 years minimum to conclude,

...the Club informed.
