İstanbul, Nov 28 (DHA) – Ahmet Özel, a lawyer for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has said documents publicized on Nov. 28 by main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu on off-shore accounts linked to Erdoğan are "fake," describing the allegations as "lies."
Özel also urged Kılıçdaroğlu to "immediately" hand the documents to the prosecutor’s office and file a criminal complaint if necessary.
Kılıçdaroğlu revealed that Erdoğan’s close circle - including his brother, his son and his executive assistant – made transactions worth around 15 million dollars to an off-shore company called Bellway Limited in the tax haven Isle of Mann in December 2011 and January 2012.
