The leader of Turkey's Felicity Party (Saadet) Temel Karamollaoğlu has said the Turkish authorities refused to renew his passport last year after alleging he was linked with terrorism.
"My passport was cancelled by adding the word 'terror' to the beginning of my name," Karamollaoğlu said.
He was allowed to get his new passport 15 days later, but nevertheless the authorities blacklisting a political party's leader was "scandal," Karamollaoğlu said.
Tens of thousands of Turkish citizens had their passports invalidated via government decrees under the emergency rule declared following a coup attempt in 2016.
The interior ministry in March declared that Turkish passports belonging to 57,191 people which were cancelled over suspected criminal activity have been reinstated.
The perception operations against the Felicity Party gained momentum again in the 23rd June elections. Previously, Felicity Party President Temel Karamollaoğlu's vehicle exemption was abolished and police guards withdrew from protecting him. Finally, while the repercussions of the scandal continue, the Founding Chairman of the Felicity Party and the Chairman of the Economic and Social Research Center (ESAM) Recai Kutan said he was investigating the matter, the Ministry said it was wrong and the situation was corrected later.
Karamollaoğlu said in a television show on Turkish channel Halk TV on Tuesday that he found he had been blacklisted when he went to renew his passport following the June 24 general elections last year.
After Karamollaoglu's statements over the matter, Felicity (Saadet) Party issued a necessary explanation over Temel Karamollaoglu's statement on the grounds of terrorism that was not given a passport.
Saadet Party Headquarters made a statement on the issue. Here is the full text of the description:
