Professor gives testify in Istanbul for donation to iftar dinner

ISTANBUL: Fatih University Professor Ismail Ozsoy gave testimony at a police station on Monday over his donation to the Turkey-Canada Friendship Association for an iftar dinner.

Speaking to Cihan news agency, Ozsoy said he donated TL 100 during an iftar dinner held by Turkey-Canada Friendship Association. After giving testimony, he stated that the police have the names of hundreds of people who participated similar organizations and gave donations as a way to distract people from the Hizmet Movement which has been exposed to discrimination and a smear campaign.

According to Ozsoy, even the police officers seemed surprised to have him at the station due to such a reason.
