Turkey’s Savings Deposit Insurance Fund (TMSF) has put property belonging to 11 media outlets that were closed down by the Turkish government in the aftermath of a failed coup on July 15, 2016 up for sale for TL 606,395.
The property belongs to media organizations such as the Jin News Agency (JINHA) Diyarbakır bureau, Azadiya Welat newspaper, Dicle News Agency (DİHA) and Bizim Kocaeli newspaper.
The equipment and fixed assets of these media outlets will be sold by sealed bid.
Bidding will last until the evening of April 30, and the transactions will be completed after an assessment of the bids. An auction will be held on May 4 for items with multiple bidders.
The Turkish government closed down hundreds of critical media outlets through government decrees following the coup attempt, claiming that they were linked to terror organizations.
