French Societe Generale claimed that gold worth $500 million which they had given to Goldaş for selling at Istanbul Gold Market has been lost and filed a criminal report about the event.The partner of Goldaş, Yalınkaya, said: "it is slander; we are shocked."
According to the claim of the French Bank, they gave the Turkish firm 15 tons of gold as consignee and authorized Goldaş for selling the gold in Istanbul Gold Market. However, the bank could not get the gold back. Goldaş made a written statement and rejected this claim. Goldaş claimed that Goldaş has a commercial dispute with Societe Generale; but the bank acted with malevolence. (Sabah)
