Turkey’s Opposition Accuses Treasury of Seizing Isbank Dividends

Turkey’s main opposition party accused the government of seizing accumulated dividends worth about 3.7 billion liras ($435 million) paid by Turkiye Is Bankasi AS.

The payouts were meant for the Turkish Language Association and the Turkish History Association and were shifted to a single Treasury account, said Murat Emir, a lawmaker for the Republican People’s Party, or CHP.
