The Federal Government has dragged the Turkish Airlines before a Federal High Court in Abuja over alleged criminal violation of the enabling law of the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) and for impunity.
A statement from the Council indicated that the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, filed a three-count charge against the airline and two of its principal officers, Liker Ayci and Rasak Shobowale, the Turkish airline’s Board Chairman and Commercial Manager respectively before Federal High Court 11 in Abuja.
The prosecution came on the heels of the refusal of Turkish Airlines to respond to lawful requests of CPC for a full situation report on the airline’s alleged shoddy treatment of passengers of Flight 623 from Istanbul to Abuja on 25th and 31st of December 2015 and 9th of January 2016.
