The paper is known for its loyal support of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who was the target of the coup attempt. According to Yeni Safak, Campbell “also managed more than $2 billion in transactions via UBA Bank in Nigeria by using CIA links to distribute among the pro-coup military personnel in Turkey.”‘

‘The NSW government has priv­ately apologised to the victims of child sexual and physical abuse carried out by multiple offenders “in brutal and terrifying circumstances” at a state-run boys’ home northwest of Sydney.

The state’s police force is also investigating the alleged violent abuse of several children at the Daruk Boys Home in Windsor ­between the 1960s and 1980s, with additional cases being referred to it by the Royal Commission into ­Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse as recently as last week.

One of these alleged victims told The Australian he was raped inside an isolation cell by two men working at the home, then forced to listen while another child was sexually abused. The man, who asked to be identified only as ­William, spent years unsuccessfully pursuing the state government through the courts, seeking compensation for what took place.’
