Turkey: AK party asks opposition to stop telling 'lies'

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkey's ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party’s spokesman on Thursday said the main opposition leader should not keep the parliament busy with his “lies”.

On Tuesday, Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu, in a speech to party lawmakers, presented documents that he alleged were evidence of his claims that relatives of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had stashed money abroad.

Erdogan rejected the allegations and vowed to resign if they could be proved.

Speaking to reporters in Ankara, Mahir Unal, the AK Party’s spokesman and the party's deputy chairman, said Kilicdaroglu should give those documents to a court and prove the claims himself.

"Therefore, he must not keep busy the Turkish parliament with an issue like this."

"Other than the Turkish parliament, he should not engage Turkish political agenda with his lies, claims, and some unknown documents, which he even does not share with his own party members," Unal stressed.
