Opposition claims against Erdogan 'total lies': Lawyer

World Bulletin / News Desk

A lawyer of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday rejected “false” allegations made by main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu.

Lawyer Ahmet Ozel’s remarks came after Kilicdaroglu claimed last week that Erdogan allegedly had money abroad.

“All allegations made by Kemal Kilicdaroglu against my client are total lies and all papers he has shown are fraudulent.

“Kilicdaroglu must immediately share the papers he showed with the public,” Ozel said in a statement.

Erdogan had also strongly rejected the allegations earlier and vowed to resign if they could be proved.

In his speech to his party deputies in the parliament Tuesday, the main opposition leader presented some documents that he claimed was evidence for his allegation against the president.

Ozel said Kilicdaroglu should submit the documents to a public prosecutor’s office and file a legal complaint.

He added that the opposition leader could share the documents with any media he wanted.

The lawyer also said Kilicdaroglu had made similar claims against the president without providing any proof.

He said Kilicdaroglu had once again been trapped by the Fetullah Terrorist Organization [FETO] and had been disgraced.

Ozel underlined that neither the president nor any of his family members had any money abroad.

Legal measures would be taken against Kilicadaroglu and he would be questioned before the judiciary, the statement said.
