In the conditions of deportation and exchange, hostility to minorities also emerged, so it was not difficult at all. Eyüplü Halit spoke very good Greek and French.

At the end of the occupation of Istanbul, three or five days before the Turkish army entered the city, Halit from Eyüp, with his friend Arab Abdullah, set up an abandoned building and set up a “police station” in a district where Greeks live heavily. Because of the authority vacuum in the city, no one could find it strange. He introduced himself as a “commissioner” and his friend as a “watchman” and haunted the wealthy people of the neighborhood.
