Trustees appointed to Gülen-linked Turkish company
KAYSERİ - Anadolu Agency
AA photoA Turkish court appointed trustees to Boydak Holding on Aug. 18 to the company’s alleged ties with the Fethullahist Terror Organization (FETÖ), which has been accused of orchestrating the failed coup attempt of July 15.
The Second Criminal Court in the Central Anatolian province of Kayseri appointed five trustees to the company as part of an ongoing probe into the organization, according to a judicial source.
A former executive at the holding, Hacı Boydak, and three other executives – Şükrü, İlyas, and Bekir Boydak – were detained in early August, while a court in Kayseri ordered the release of the holding’s chairman, Mustafa Boydak, and another executive, Halit Bayhan, on probation that included an international travel ban.
According to the Boydak Holding website, the family-based consortium was established in 1957 and has interests in furniture, textiles, chemicals, marketing, logistics and energy. Its 42 companies employ more than 14,000 staff.
