DHA photoThree executives of a leading Turkish holding were remanded in custody as part of investigations into the activities of U.S.-based Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen in the Central Anatolian province of Kayseri early Aug. 1, a judicial source told Anadolu Agency.
An international travel ban was also imposed on Mustafa Boydak and Halit Bayhan.
“We trust in Turkish justice. We hope that all of our fellows in jail will join us outside soon,” said Mustafa Boydak, as quoted by Doğan News Agency.
Two other high representatives of the company were already jailed in Ankara and Kayseri.
The latest detentions were made on July 29 as part of an investigation into the financing of Gülen’s activities in Turkey.
Ankara blames the cleric for the failed July 15 coup attempt.
