Turkey has frozen the assets of six people and seven organizations under Law No. 6415 on the Prevention of the Financing of Terrorism, local media reported on Friday.

The decision, which was published in the Official Gazette on Friday and was signed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, includes people and organizations suspected of financing the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Among the six suspects are Ahmet Bayultan and İsmail Bayultan, whose assets were also frozen by the US government on similar charges in April, in addition to Faruq Hamud, Adnan Muhammad Amin Al-Rawi, Taleb Ahmad and Ammar Yasar Lutfi Sahloul, Turkish media reports said.

According to the reports, Alsultan Jewelry, El Haldi Jewellery, Alhobo Jewellery, Tawasul Textile and Firstone International are also among the businesses suspected of financing terrorism.

People whose assets are frozen are allowed to file a lawsuit at the Council of State, Turkey’s highest administrative court, within 60 days after the decision is published in the Official Gazette.
