The leader of Turkey’s IHH, which organized the 2010 Gaza-bound flotilla, is being investigated on suspicion of funding al-Qaida through the organization, Turkish media reported on Friday.
According to the reports, Bulent Yilidirim, the leader of the Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief, known by its Turkish acronym IHH, was investigated by a specially appointed prosecutor under the suspicion that the organization is being used to channel funds to al-Qaida.
Yilidirim, who was on board the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara ship, is accused of "providing financial aid to al-Qaida via his foundation," the daily Hurriyet reported.
The reports did not mention the source of the funds or the al-Qaida cell which was financed.
