Harun Kapıyoldaş, who has been detained as part of an investigation of the Germany-based Deniz Feneri e.V. aid association, was referred to an Ankara court to testify on Thursday. Kapıyoldaş testified to prosecutors Nadi Türkaslan, Abdulvahap Yaren and Mehmet Tamöz, who carried out the investigation.
Six suspects were arrested as part of the ongoing probe, including former Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK) President Zahit Akman and senior executives from the Kanal 7 television network.
The Deniz Feneri suspects stand accused of funneling money collected for charity from pious workers in Germany into various companies and businesses in Turkey. The investigation of Deniz Feneri began in 2008 when the charity's suspicious activities came under scrutiny.
