Mustafa Albayrak

Born in 1964, Mustafa Albayrak is a shareholder - along with his five brothers - and the Head of the Board of Directors of Albayrak Yayın Holding A.Ş., which owns Yeni Şafak newspaper, seven magazines and two TV channels. He heads the boards of directors of four other media companies within the group, which is known to have close ties to the ruling AK Parti and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The group has taken hundreds of public tenders especially since the mid 90s, some of which were subject to claims and investigations of corruption. Mustafa Albayrak was imprisoned for 6 months in 2001-2002 for claims of corruption in public tenders, related to construction and transportation, taken from Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality.
