Vice Prime Minister and Spokesperson for Government Bekir Bozdağ has made a statement on his Twitter account regarding the money transfer documents of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's family that were revealed by Republican People's Party (CHP) Chair Kılıçdaroğlu yesterday (November 28).
Yesterday at CHP group meeting, Kılıçdaroğlu shared the swift codes and transfer receipts of 13 million 750 thousand dollars sent by Erdoğan's brother, son, brother-in-law and principal clerk to Isle of Man with public.
State-run TRT cut the live broadcast in the middle of Kılıçdaroğlu's speech.
Regarding the revealed documents, Bozdağ said "Kılıçdaroğlu who has smeared our President, his family and acquaintances [...] will give account before justice".
Some headlines from Bozdağ's tweets denying the documents are as follows:
"CHP Chair Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu has cast aspersions upon our President Mr. R. Tayyip Erdoğan, his family and some acquaintances.
"He even used some false documents in yesterday's group meeting to make the people believe his slander.
"Everything Kılıçdaroğlu said about our President Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, his family and acquaintances is a lie, slander.
"The documents Kılıçdaroğlu presented as evidence to prove his claim is right, are fake.
"No such money has been transferred to the firm in that country as Kılıçdaroğlu claimed.
"Besides, Mr Mustafa Gündoğan is a businessman and has never been the private secretary of our President Mr. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
"We would like to repeat and underline, neither our Mr. President nor his family has any money abroad".
Bozdağ also implied, that Kılıçdaroğlu acquired the "fake documents and false information from the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization (FETÖ) or another enemy of Turkey".
Justice and Development Party (AKP) Vice Chair and Spokesperson for AKP Mahir Ünal had said yesterday regarding the revealed documents:
"If the documents he [Kılıçdaroğlu] has do constitute a crime, he is also committing a crime according the Constitution. He cannot possess these documents, he has to hand them over to the Prosecutor's office".
Ünal also implied that the documents were an act of "certain circles operating in the United States". (AS/DG)
