TURKISH PRESS REVIEW on MAY 27

The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All of the Turkish dailies covered the announcement of list of top ten corporate taxpayers, where eight spots, including the top, were occupied by banking institutions. Daily HABERTURK headlined "Banks are the tax champions", saying four out of the eight banks in top ten were state-owned.

Turkish Disneyland

Turkish dailies also covered the opening of the first themed amusement park in Turkey, inaugurated by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who visited the park in Istanbul with his spouse and daughter on Sunday. Daily STAR described the park as "Turkish Disneyland", whereas daily AKSAM called it "the world of wonders." Daily HABERTURK published "Born out of mud" and said the place where the park was once a quarry, but was filled with mud from the Golden Horn and therefore made suitable for the construction of the park.

Hezboshaitan

Several Turkish dailies covered Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag's remarks concerning Lebanese group Hezbollah, where he said the group, due to its continued support for the embattled Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad and the long-boiling civil war that left the country in ruins, must change its name from Hezbollah (party of God) to Hezboshaitan (party of the devil). Daily MILLIYET headlined "Hezbollah decides for action in Turkey", saying the group was exposed in its plans to organize an act of violence in Turkey before the Reyhanli twin bombings along Turkish-Syria border, the deadliest attack on Turkish soil since the beginning of the Syrian conflict two years ago.
