Workers show the receits of the donations made in their name. DHA PhotoSome 20 workers at the Nakka Architecture Firm have said their boss donated small amounts of money to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s presidential election campaign in their name, but without their knowledge.
These workers work for the new customs office on the Aegean island of Bozcaada.
Their boss donated 10 Turkish Liras for each worker after collecting their identity cards, telling them it was required for the insurance paperwork.
One of the workers, Aziz Ünal, said he discovered the situation by coincidence and told his colleagues about the issue. Four workers including, İsmet Güngör (51), Aziz Ünal (59), Mehmet Dingin (36), Rahmi Alkan (34) went to the bank branch, calling to cancel the transfer.
A representative from the firm, Bülent Sancak, said the donation was made with the firm’s own budget and the workers were distorting what happened. He also mentioned he usually makes donations for TEMA and the animals and he does not understand why their workers were upset.
