Officials of the Humanitarian Aid Foundation (İHH) have denied a news story claiming that an official investigation has been launched into İHH President Bülent Yıldırım over his alleged links to al-Qaeda.
Osman Atalay, an İHH board member, told Today’s Zaman: “Mr. Yıldırım has not been summoned to testify or served any court document. We have not received any official information regarding an investigation. The newspaper hasn’t been able to provide any documented proof as to such an investigation either.”
The İHH also announced through its official Twitter account that the reporter from Habertürk daily who wrote the story stated that prosecutors and police officials had refuted the story.
