ANKARA – Turkish Daily News
The deputy leader of main opposition party's parliamentary group Friday came up with three new documents to strengthen accusations of corruption against a senior ruling party member.
The Republican People's Party's, or CHP, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu earlier in the week revealed a protocol signed by the deputy leader of the ruling Justice and Development Party, or AKP, Şaban Dişli, and accused him of making a business deal in return for $1 million. Dişli has refuted the allegations, arguing that the document publicized by Kılıçdaroğlu is a protocol signed in order to secure his assets, which were blocked as guarantee for raising bank credits for Akademi Ofset, of which he was previously a shareholder.
Kılıçdaroğlu insisted Friday that Dişli had never been a shareholder of Akademi Ofset and distributed photocopies of three deposit slips prepared before Silivri's second regional directorship of the land registry. Kılıçdaroğlu argued that deposit slips showed that in order to raise a credit of $2.2 million almost double that amount must be provided as guarantee to Denizbank. �These documents openly certify that the protocol which Dişli signed is a proof of a bribe. It is a document of shame,� Kılıçdaroğlu said in a press conference in the parliament building. He also implied that the AKP talks of religion and faith but only thinks about money.
