Kaynak Holding declared that they file a claim for damages against the Ministry of Justice.
Hürol Karadaş, a lawyer representing Kaynak Holding, “We wanted to prepare a report indicating our objection to the [unlawful] actions that took place during the audit. They [police officers and auditors] did not allow us to record most of our objections. We were only able to state three of our objections.” said on Wednesday.
Referring to the statement of “strong suspicion of crime” included in the warrant, Karadaş said: “If they [government prosecutors] can talk about ‘strong suspicion of crime’ when there isn’t even a reasonable suspicion about the holding and media reports can be used as evidence for a search warrant, Turkey is no longer a state of law.”
Karadaş also emphasized that tax inspectors were involved in the raid even though their involvement was not indicated in the court’s search warrant presented by the police.
