Report was accurate, Erdogan says.
Last month, Abdullah Badawi said the Hurriyet's report that he was in Bodrum to take a peek at a RM30 million yacht belonging to him was "inaccurate" and "a lie". The Malaysian PM said he would ask the Hurriyet to make the necessary correction.
The boat manufacturer reportedly issued a statement to say that it never received any order for the yacht called Cobra Sultan from the Malaysian PM. Malaysian newspapers carried the the boat manufacturer's statement but it is not known if Hurriyet did the same or if it was issued the same statement in the first place.
Yesterday, MalaysiaToday quoted Anwar Ibrahim as saying that the Turkish PM had told him the Hurriyet report on Abdullah and the RM30 yacht as tepat (accurate)/ and berasas (substantiated). Anwar said Recep Tayyip Erdogan told him this when they met recently.
The Turkish PM, it seems, was also disappointed with Abdullah for another reason. [read here for more; here for the Harakah's take]
