Akyn y-pek's uncle dies of brain hemorrhage.

ANKARA (CyHAN)- Ahmet Metin Hasyroy-lu, the uncle of Koza ypek Holding CEO Akyn ypek, passed away early on Friday, slightly more than a week after suffering a brain hemorrhage.

The hemorrhage occurred on the same day that Turkish riot police stormed the headquarters of critical media outlets affiliated with Koza ypek Holding in ystanbul shortly after dawn on Oct. 28, with journalists from the paper making futile efforts to prevent them from entering into the building. He was being treated at a private hospital in Ankara where he died on Friday.

According to an announcement from his doctors, Hasyroy-lu died of a brain hemorrhage that could have been caused by stress.

The management of the 22 companies under Koza ypek Holding has been under administrative receivership since Oct. 28, when an Ankara court ruled that the conglomerate was suspected of financing "terrorism."

On Oct. 26 the Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor's Office ordered Koza ypek Holding to be placed under the management of a trustee panel while an investigation continues into the group's purported ties to US-based Islamic scholar Fethullah GE-len, who is currently wanted for "being the head of and managing a terror organization."

On the same day of the raid in ystanbul, municipal police from Ankara's GE[micro]lbaE-y Municipality went to the home of the ypek family to demolish part of the house, on grounds that it was constructed without a building permit. Hasyroy-lu was reportedly involved in a quarrel with police at the ypek home and suffered a brain hemorrhage later that same day.

The Ankara-based Koza ypek Holding is active in several sectors, including media, energy and mining. (Cihan/Today's Zaman) CyHAN
