In a letter of November 7, the Turkish Embassy in Dushanbe notes that erroneous information is contained in the English version of report “Half-built Ismoili Somoni Hotel catches fire in downtown Dushanbe”, which was posted by Asia-Plus on its website at 1:47 pm of November 4. 

Informing about the beginning of the construction of a 5-star “Ismoili Somoni” Hotel in Dushanbe, Asia-Plus noted that Kaynak Holding top manager Mustafa Ozcan told the hotel groundbreaking ceremony on March 15, 2006.    

“Kaynak Holding that was mentioned in the report was confiscated on November 11, 2015 in the framework of the fight against the armed terrorist organization – the terrorist organization of Fethullah Gulen (FETO) – and later the company was transferred to the Savings Deposit Insurance Fund of Turkey.

“The Ministry of Justice of Turkey issued detention warrant for Mustafa Ozcan, who is mentioned in this report.  The mentioned person, whose passport is considered invalid, is currently on the international wanted list.”

“In the framework of principles of impartial journalism and the right to rebut,” the Embassy of the Republic of Turkey asked to publish the abovementioned information.
