Two more arrested in Turkish Deniz Feneri e. V. case

A Turkish court Friday arrested two more people as part of a probe into "Deniz Feneri e. V.", a German charity organization whose executives were charged with embezzling money.

Harun Kapuyoldas and Muzaffer Safak were arrested by Ankara 13th Penal Court of Peace within the scope of the investigation carried out by Ankara Chief Prosecutor's Office.

Another detainee, Mustafa Bolukbasi, was released after interrogation.

Last month, member of Turkey's Supreme Board of Radio and Television (RTUK), Zahid Akman, and three executives of Kanal 7 were also arrested within the scope of the investigation.

In September 2008, a German court convicted three Turks of fraud for drawing off donations and using them for other purposes outside charity.

The Frankfurt State Court sentenced the three men working for the charity Deniz Feneri e.V in Germany to prison terms.

Court judge Johann Muller had said after the trial that Deniz Feneri e.V. had received a total of 41 million euros of donations over last five years in Germany and 17 million euros of that had been sent to Turkey.
