ISTANBUL
Bank Asya, a leading Turkish financial institution, announced on Sunday that their corporate governance rating had increased in June over its score from last year.

The bank released the figures in an announcement addressed to the Public Disclosure Forum (KAP). According to a recent report prepared by the Capital Markets Board (SPK), Bank Asya’s corporate governance rating increased from 84.20 in June 2013 to 90.85 in June of this year.

The founders of Bank Asya are known for being affiliated with the Hizmet movement, inspired by Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen. News reports circulated earlier this year indicating the government had attempted to sabotage the bank, as corporations with close ties to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan withdrew upwards of TL 4 billion from their accounts, accounting for nearly one-fifth of the bank’s deposits.

One can talk about the mistakes of some Hizmet volunteers or institutions that are affiliated with Hizmet.

Just like the Prophet said to all on the day of the Conquest of Mecca: ‘Go! You are all free today’.”

Turkish authorities use charges of terrorism to silence free speech

Journalists in Turkey are being charged with “being involved in terrorist activities” and “endangering state security” to justify the current crackdown on the media, as this is the only legitimate way for Turkish leadership to silence and censor dissident voices while shielding themselves from being seen as infringers on the freedom of speech and expression, unambiguously protected under international law.
