Families of 1980 coup leaders deny report
ISTANBUL - Anatolia News Agency
Evren (R) and Şahinkaya (L) were the two main leaders of 1980 coup. AA photoFamilies of the 1980 coup leaders have objected to the report issued by Turkey’s Financial Crimes Investigative Board (MASAK) that revealed they owned large amounts of real estate property.
Füsun Celasun, the daughter-in-law of the former commander of the Turkish Gendarmerie Forces Sedat Celasun, described the report as “imaginary.”
The report indicated that she owned 28 five-story buildings with a total of 224 apartments. According to Füsün Celasun, these 224 apartments were army housing that was built during Sedat Celasun’s term in office. Meanwhile, MASAK authorities said the online records were taken from land title documents, and they were unable to make comparisons between them as the relevant people did not issue a property declaration before.
