Main opposition CHP leader’s daughter sells her flat to daily Güneş
Dinçer Gökçe - ISTANBUL
The conveyance of title was completed at a notary in the afternoon of Feb. 28
In its “Buzgate” news series, daily Güneş claimed that the price of the flat in the Buz Residence building was $1 million.
In its headline news on Dec. 20, 2017, the newspaper made a bid to buy the one-bedroom flat at the price of $100,000 following the CHP leader’s response during a TV program that they could sell the house if anyone would pay that price.
“First of all, I thank you, as you have declared that you are ready to buy the flat for $100,000. I would like to notify that I am ready to sell the mentioned estate for the price in the Turkish Lira equivalent of $100,000, all the income tax, charges and costs at your expense. I wish you enjoy living in the flat in case you really accept to buy it. [The flat] indeed does not have a view of the [Prince] islands. I just wanted to inform you in advance so that you don’t believe the false news published in your mentioned daily and get disappointed,” Kılıçdaroğlu said in her letter to Yeşildağ on Dec. 23, 2017.
