One of the companies participating in the tender “Recruitment of personnel in cultural centers and procurement of services for cultural and art organizations”, held on December 29, 2015, filed an objection that the company that won the tender did not meet the requirements, but the objection was rejected municipal authorities.
The corresponding tender during Imamoglu’s tenure as mayor of Beylikduzu was transferred to the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the next period.
The ministry launched an investigation into the tender. The inspection carried out by the Civil Inspectorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was completed and the report was sent to the Buyukcekmece General Prosecutor’s Office. The Chief Prosecutor’s Office requested permission to investigate Ekrem Imamoglu, then mayor of Beylikdüzü, and named those responsible for the tender. Although the Ministry of the Interior gave permission for the investigation, the process was referred to the Council of State after objections. The State Council found permission to investigate on October 20, 2020…
