Serkan Anilir's Ph.D. has been officially revoked by the University of Tokyo.http://www.u-tokyo.ac.jp/public/public01_220305_j.html
This is the first ever such instance in the 133 year history of the university.
Not surprisingly, the tone of the press release (only in Japanese so far) is
very serious. Mr. Anilir plagiarized ~40% of his thesis, often copy/pasting
multiple pages of text and figures at a time. In some cases, he intentionally
changed the words to "I" and "by author" etc., to make it look like HE came
up with the ideas. The press release says that the university is still investigating
other allegations surrounding Mr. Anilir, such as listing nonexistent references
in grant progress reports and various unconfirmed past positions in his resume.
