CHP’s Beşiktaş mayor referred to party disciplinary board on corruption claims
ANKARAThe main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) has launched an investigation into Murat Hazinedar, the mayor of the Istanbul district of Beşiktaş, on claims of corruption.
The move came after an inner-party commission prepared a report on corruption allegations in local municipalities, daily Milliyet reported. The report alleged that Hazinedar did not act in accordance with party discipline, cut down trees, forced municipality workers to perform personal errands, and abetted incidents of violence.
“We will leave it to the disciplinary committee to manage the process. It would not be appropriate to go into details today. What we discussed [in the board meeting] was whether or not to bring the issue to the disciplinary process,” Böke stated.
