Koza İpek Group

İpek Matbaacılık (printing house) was founded by Ali İpek in 1948. Later turning into Koza İpek Group, the group expanded its areas of operation, which recently ranged from gold mining to oil, gas, coal and renewable energy industries.The media group which owned more than 20 media outlets was confiscated in 2016, after the rift between the Erdoğan government and Gülen organization began. İpek Koza Holding which operated İpek Medya was a close ally of the AKP government until the rift. The reason for the closure of the media group was announced to be the debt the group was in. However, the media group was already taken over by government prior to its closure, based on allegations of money laundering and support to "Gulen Terror Organization."
