ISTANBUL (CIHAN)- The parliamentary State Economic Enterprises (KIT) commission has decided to file a complaint against the administration of state-run Halkbank, whose general manager is currently under arrest as part of a major recent corruption investigation, for refusing to share information regarding non-performing loans to the commission. According to a Taraf daily report published on Friday, eight members of the KIT commission investigating alleged irregularities at Halkbank, which has been frequently mentioned in relation to corruption allegations after a graft scandal erupted on Dec. 17, 2013 , went to the bank's headquarters and asked for its documents on non-performing loans. However, Halkbank's managers refused to share the documents on the grounds that they are confidential. Taraf said the situation between the commission members and Halkbank managers grew tense when the latter refused to share the documents. Halkbank General Manager SÜleyman Aslan stands accused of fraud after police found $4.5 million in shoeboxes in his house. (Cihan/Today's Zaman) CIHAN
