Doğan Media Group companies deny false reports on ‘sale of dailies’
ISTANBULTwo Doğan Media Group companies, Hürriyet Gazetecilik A.Ş. and Doğan Gazetecilik A.Ş., released separate statements to the Public Disclosure Platform (KAP) on April 10, saying that reports on the “sale of daily Hürriyet and daily Posta do not reflect the truth.”
“Reports on some media organs on the weekend suggesting that ‘our company and daily Hürriyet were sold’ did not reflect the truth. As of the current situation, there is neither a board decision nor any works in this respect. On the other hand, reports on some media organs on the weekend suggesting that Vuslat Sabancı resigned from her post as chairwoman of the executive board also did not reflect the truth. The correct version is that: the work distribution of our board, which was elected in an ordinary general meeting held on March 30, 2017, had not been conducted yet and Vuslat Sabancı will continue her duty under a ‘member’ status after the work distribution of our board,” Hürriyet Gazetecilik A.Ş. said in the statement.
Separately, Doğan Gazetecilik A.Ş. also refuted reports suggesting that daily Posta had been sold.
“Reports on some media organs on the weekend suggesting that daily Posta, which is operating under our company, ‘has been sold’ did not reflect the truth. As of the current situation, there is neither a board decision nor any work regarding the issue,” Doğan Gazetecilik A.Ş. said in its statement.
