THY denies releasing controversial prosecutor's flight information

Turkish Airlines (THY) on Friday said it did not share any of its passengers' flight information with any individuals or institutions. 

Oz's personal flight information was released to the public by the Sabah daily this week. THY's personal privacy rules state that all passengers' flight information is confidential.

THY Senior Vice President of Media Relations Ali Genc tweeted: “Flight information may only be provided to judicial authorities if a court decision is present. Other than a court decision, such demands [for information] are not met. The information released in the media was not provided by THY, and there were no requests made to THY regarding the matter [Oz's flight information]."

The Sabah report said Oz made 22 trips abroad in the last two years, and the prosecutor responded by saying he would resign from his post if the daily's claims are proven to be true. He said he would expect the same thing from those repeating the claims if they are proven incorrect.

Oz was previously serving as the deputy chief prosecutor of the Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor's Office and was working on an ongoing corruption investigation. He began his post as deputy chief public prosecutor at the Bakırkoy Public Prosecutor's Office on Thursday, where he was reassigned by the Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSYK).
